This egg was given out for Creature Release Week in January of 2014.
Aurelian eggs, although harmless, are disconcertingly squishy and slimy to the touch. The Science and Research Center theorizes that the surface of the egg becomes the Aurelian's body while the dangerous tentacles develop within.
When an Aurelian first hatches it is still relatively safe to handle as its tentacles have yet to acquire their stinging potency. As the creature grows and matures so does its power, and a full grown Aurelian should not be touched without proper safety equipment, or at the very least a pair of rubber gloves. Many hypotheses exist to explain why the increase in an Aurelian's electricity is proportional to its age. The most popular theory suggests that the Aurelian's soft body absorbs ions from its seawater habitat throughout its life, eventually resulting in major conductivity.
