I have a very old egg apparently collected during an expedition

This answer was rated:

I have a very old egg apparently collected during an expedition to Antarctica. It is triangular in shape like an egg layed on a cliff edge (like an Auk) but is 13 cms in length.
Have you any idea what could lay a triangular egg that size.
Hello. For the size i would say it could be an Albatross Or a Giant antarctic petrel

It is too big to be an Antarctic Fulmar.
