What is a Dinosaur Egg?
This item is also an artifact, so there are several other ways you can get it in the game, which we’ll discuss later. It’s inedible and you can’t use it in any recipes, but there are other uses for it.
You can put this into an incubator in a Big or Deluxe Coop. It will hatch a dinosaur 12 days later, while it will only take six days with the Coopmaster Profession.
It can also be donated to the local museum to complete the collection. However, it would be smart to not donate your first one and incubate it instead so you’ll have an endless supply. Once your dinosaur produces an egg, you can then donate that one.
How to Find It?
You can find it in the following ways:
- The Mountains and the Quarry. Dig up an Artifact Spot, a spot that looks like a bunch of worms (0.6% chance)
- FIshing Treasure Chests. With at least a Fishing skill level 2 (0.7 to 0.8% chance)
- Pepper Rex enemies. As a drop after previously finding at least one artifact (10% chance)
- Skull Cavern. By foraging on Prehistoric Floors
- Movie Theater. By winning it as a prize on the Crane Game (only after completing the Community Center or the JojaMart Community)
And of course, if you have a dinosaur, it will produce one egg every seven days as long as it’s fed well.
While this item is inedible, you can sell it for 350g per piece, but you can sell it for more depending on its quality.
Here is a table for comparison:
A dino egg can be used to make Dinosaur Mayonnaise. Simply place it into a Mayonnaise Machine and wait three hours. You can sell the mayo for 800g at normal quality, but you can get more for it with the Rancher Profession (20%) or Artisan Profession (40%). See the table below for comparison.
Using it in the spool of a Sewing Machine will create a Dino Hat. It can also be used as a green dye in the dye pots.
Almost every Villager will dislike being given a dino egg except for Dwarf and Penny.
