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


Bronto Eggs are randomly dropped by Bronto Brontos. They can be eaten or used to make Exceptional Kibble Exceptional Kibble for taming Basilosaurus Basilosaurus, Brontosaurus Brontosaurus, Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus, Karkinos Karkinos, Managarmr Managarmr, Mosasaurus Mosasaurus, Quetzal Quetzal, Rex Rex, Spino Spino, Therizinosaur Therizinosaur, and Tropeognathus Tropeognathus. On ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile Logo Mobile, they can be used to make Kibble (Mobile) Kibble (Bronto Egg) for taming a Sabertooth Sabertooth.

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

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


Disambig Main article: Incubation

The Bronto Egg takes 4h 59m 58.561s to hatch. It must be in the temperature range of 28 to 31 °C / 82 to 88 °F to successfully hatch, otherwise it will start to lose Health Health. The female Bronto Bronto 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 (Genesis Part 2) Egg Incubator at the ideal temperature.


Retrieving a wild Bronto Egg on foot is extremely dangerous. The Bronto's tail whips are heavily damaging, and are able to fling the player several meters. We recommend using an oviraptor for such a job. Enduring such attacks can result in an untimely death, and they can run over the player as well. An aerial mount such as a Pteranodon can quickly get out of range of an aggressive Bronto (make sure your mount has the weight capacity to carry the one of the largest eggs currently in game). An aquatic mount can also provide a quick escape if available. Land mounts with some kind of speed (Carno, Raptor, Pachy, etc.) or a savvy player with a clear path can usually outrun a Bronto if no other option is available.
