      Default Eggs that float in Saturated Saline

      Remember, "I HATE fertilised eggs"

      Hymenolepis nana and Hookworm
      Ascaris lumbricoides
      Trichuris trichura
      Enterobius vermicularis

      So the fertilised eggs of all the above float in saturated saline. Everything else sinks.
