About Staga Eggs

This egg was only available in Egg Cave's Cash Shop Park for Father's Day 2014 (June 15).

A remarkable characteristic of Staga eggs is that they are able to remain in a dormant, seemingly lifeless state for hundreds of years before expiring. However, there are cases of some Staga eggs even remaining dormant for more than a thousand years if need be. The Science and Research Center in Ark City has discovered that the currently longest dormant Staga egg is roughly 1,250 years old. It is unknown when/if this egg will hatch.

The ability to stay in dormancy for very long periods is why the Science and Research Center had thought the species was actually extinct at one point. The species was rediscovered when a small herd of Staga were found patrolling a jungle on the outskirts of the Northern Plains. An estimated 75 Staga are thought to be currently alive on Ark, along with an untold number of eggs buried around the island. In fact, there is an entire team of scientists dedicated to searching for and logging the location of Staga eggs.

About the Staga Creature

Much like the Sorien and Frice, the Staga is nearly identical to the ancient dinosaurs of Ark's past.

Male Staga are notoriously protective of any offspring in their herd (even if the child isn't blood-related) and are readily willing to sacrifice their own lives to protect them. A single well-placed swipe from a Staga's spiked tail can easily gore the toughest of hides. Despite this protective aggression, Staga are herbivores and are otherwise quite docile.

The city of Leila, being located in the Northern Plains, results in it being considerably close to the Staga's natural habitat. The unfortunate consequence of this close proximity is that poachers can more easily target the species for their back plates and spikes, which are then sold on the black market for high prices.

Anyone found guilty of poaching Staga is subjected to life in prison, as it is a very serious federal offense.
