This egg was given out for Creature Release Week in January of 2014.
As Eereek eggs mature, their soft shell gradually disintegrates, eventually allowing the creature inside to break through and move on its own.
Despite their frightening appearance, Eereek are extremely social creatures. Once an Eereek hatches it instinctively searches for the nearest human and will imprint on this person, forming a lifetime bond with them. For this reason Arkians know to keep their Eereek eggs very close by when they are nearing gestation. A mistake could be deadly, as some people may mistake a young Eereek's affection for aggression and react with fear, or worse, a rolled up newspaper.
