    It would be interesting to work out the mathematical relationship between the crusher section shapes and the object needed, as here, to allow the object to "float" on top of the sections.

    Somewhat OT but egg shapes can evolve based on their environment. The guillemot lays conical eggs that won't roll off the narrow ledges on which their parents place them...

    I don't think that's actually reversed. I think that's probably a wooden egg that's smooth and light, and just the right size not to get caught by the teeth, because even running backwards a real egg would break banging agains the sharp edges like that.

    I love a good reversed GIF mystery. It's like a more sophisticated version of a What's This Tool? thread.

    It does not appear running backward in the video, but it could have been with the video was shot. Then the video reversed to make the gif appear that way it does.

    The shredder is rotating in the proper direction for shredding, but Mirroring in videography is a common issue with no text it's difficult to tell. I'm with Hemmjo on this...could have been shot reversing and edited forward. The egg could be a solid or filled plastic Easter Egg but its size in relation to the tooth spacing is an interesting math challenge as Marv says. It does appear to walk upward (in the Gif) several teeth...I think. Conical eggs...mother nature at her best.

    Looks like a tossup (or combination) between:

    -A fake egg, whose shape prevents it from being crushed.
    -A shredder machine filmed while operating in reverse, the video recording of which was then itself reversed.
