If you're a fan of Pyropet's cat-shaped candles that reveal metal skeletons as they burn, you'll probably be very excited about one of Firebox's newest products. The company will soon sell dinosaur egg candles that reveal a cute baby raptor inside when lit.

What starts out as a simple round candle becomes a dinosaur emerging from bubbling hot wax as the wick burns. The nearly six-inch product comes with the helpful disclaimer: "Sometimes life doesn't find a way. Dinosaurs are 100% extinct." The eggs aren't on sale yet, but you can pre-order one now for $45.39. 

You might have learned from Jurassic Park that hatching dinosaur eggs is a risky endeavor, so proceed with caution when grabbing your lighter.
