Used to craft

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


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

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

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

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. The female   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 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.

Super Fertilized Egg (Mobile)[]

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

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

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

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