Incubation

Incubation is the process of hatching a Fertilized Egg into a baby dinosaur.

Incubation requires time and a steady temperature, e.g. by isolation in a room, or Air Conditioners, fire can be used to increase the temperature. The amount of time an incubated egg requires before it hatches into a baby dinosaur depends on the species of the parents.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Fertilized Eggs can be kept anywhere until you are ready to hatch them. They won't lose health as long as they are not on the ground.
  • The recommended amount of Air Conditioner is 5-10 because it will incubate most eggs in their ideal temperature.
  • Some colder / hotter areas require more air conditioners.
  • The material of the incubation room also determines the insulation quality with thatch being the lowest and metal being the best.
