The Deinonychus Nest is a structure in ARK: Survival Evolved's Valguero DLC. These nests hold Deinonychus Egg (Valguero) Deinonychus Eggs and are primarily found in The White Cliffs.


Deinonychus nests are found throughout the White Cliffs in the bottom right of the map, and are often accompanied by multiple wild deinonychus who will attack as soon as you take an egg.

  • Despite most egg laying animals being known to lay clutches of multiple eggs, Deinoncyus only lays one egg in their nests. This is probably intentional as to prevent players from acquiring large amounts of eggs that can hatch into a sizable army of pack boosted tames within a short amount of time.
