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


Quetzal Eggs are randomly dropped by  Quetzals. They can be eaten or used to make  Exceptional Kibble for taming  Basilosaurus,  Brontosaurus,  Giganotosaurus,  Karkinos,  Managarmr,  Mosasaurus,  Quetzal,  Rex,  Spino,  Therizinosaur, and  Tropeognathus.

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

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


Disambig.png Main article: Incubation

The Quetzal Egg takes 16h 39m 55.199s to hatch. It must be in the temperature range of 5 to 6 °C / 41 to 43 °F to successfully hatch, otherwise it will start to lose  Health. The female  Quetzal 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.

The egg can also be used to tame an  Oviraptor.


Retrieving a Quetzal Egg in the wild can be a surprisingly dangerous endeavor. Despite their usual skittish nature, a Quetzal provoked to anger is a dangerous adversary considering their health, speed, stamina, and attack. A  Pteranodon trained for high speed can outrun a Quetzal, though will quickly be slain if used in an attempt for a counterattack. A nearby aquatic escape will allow a player to flee as a Quetzal will not enter water, though in many places this might not be possible. Bringing a tamed Quetzal or two as some backup can make the process somewhat safer, but if you have a tamed Quetzal or two, it's much safer to simply collect their eggs anyway, not to mention easier to find them.
