A French artist has hatched 10 eggs, spending three weeks sitting in a 98F glass case.
"Abraham Poincheval has been on public display inside a glass case in the Palais de Tokyo modern art museum since March 29, and can be seen checking on the eggs every few minutes via the museum's live YouTube feed," The Telegraph reported.
Poincheval, who is the father of two, was successful to hatch the first egg earlier this week.
"It's been really tough for him. He has slept sitting on the eggs. It's been a lot harder than being shut inside the rock," dailmail.co.uk said quoting a spokeswoman for the museum.
Poincheval had stayed inside the glass that has temperature of 37 degree Celsius that is must for the eggs to hatch.
He had also spent a fortnight inside a bear carcass eating worms and insects, and navigated the Rhone river inside a giant corked bottle.

Challenges for reconstruction
One of the major challenges faced in the reconstruction process of Nepal is the absence of elected local government.
