The Archaeopteryx Egg is one of the Eggs in ARK: Survival Evolved.


Archaeopteryx Eggs are randomly dropped by  Archaeopteryx. They can be eaten or used to make  Simple Kibble for taming  Archaeopteryx,  Diplocaulus,  Gallimimus,  Giant Bee,  Ichthyosaurus,  Iguanodon,  Megaloceros,  Morellatops,  Pachy,  Raptor, and  Triceratops. On ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile Logo Mobile.svg, they can be used to make  Kibble (Archaeopteryx Egg) for taming a  Diplocaulus.

After two  Archaeopteryx mate, the resulting egg can be hatched into a baby  Archaeopteryx.

Grabbing an egg in the presence of wild  Archaeopteryx will cause them to become hostile and attack the survivor.


Disambig.png Main article: Incubation

The Archaeopteryx Egg takes 2h 37m 52.927s to hatch. It must be in the temperature range of 16 to 20 °C / 61 to 68 °F to successfully hatch, otherwise it will start to lose  Health. The female  Archaeopteryx needs between 18h and 2d before having the capacity to lay eggs again. The incubation time can be reduced by up to 20% if the egg is placed in an  Egg Incubator at the ideal temperature.


Archeopteryx eggs can be retrieved from wild or tamed Archeopteryx

Taking an egg from a wild Archeopteryx will cause it to attack you, however there is little risk in picking up an Archeopteryx egg due to their very low - to none damage. A survivor just has to pick it up.

You can alternatively take the eggs from a tamed Archeopteryx without her becoming aggressive. The rate of egg laying can be improved if you have a male Archeopteryx for the Mate Boost and an Oviraptor near by.

Super Fertilized Egg (Mobile)[]

Logo Mobile.svg This section is about a feature exclusively available on Mobile

 Super Fertilized Archaeopteryx Eggs are a type of Archaeopteryx Egg exclusive to ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile.

These Eggs can be obtained after a female  Archaeopteryx with a  Carnivore Pheromone applied has laid one. They will hatch quicker than normal Archaeopteryx Eggs and the baby  Archaeopteryx will have better stats when it has hatched.

They can also be used to craft  Super Kibble (Archaeopteryx Egg), which will  tame Creatures faster and with more taming effectiveness.
