Overview[edit | edit source]
Quetzal Eggs are randomly dropped by Quetzals. They can be eaten or used to make Exceptional Kibbles for taming Basilosaurus, Brontosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Karkinos, Managarmr, Mosasaurus, Quetzal, Rex, Spinosaur, and Therizinosaur. On ARK: Survival Evolved Mobile, they can be used to make Kibble (Quetzal Egg) for taming Mosasaurus, Dimetrodon and Giganotosaurus.
Picking one up in the presence of nearby Quetzals (excluding domesticated ones) will cause them to become hostile and attack the survivor.
The egg can also be used to tame an Oviraptor.
Collecting[edit | edit source]
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.
Super Fertilized Egg (Mobile)[edit | edit source]

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