Kakakuona eggs are extremely well armored. So much so that predators have largely given up on eating Kakakuona eggs. This also means that the eggs require help when it comes time to hatch. Kakakuona parents will use their large claws to help the hatchling inside crack open their eggs. For humans that want to hatch a Kakakuona there are a variety of classes held that teach the best way to help their new egg hatch.
Kakakuonas are just as well armored as their eggs are, at least on their backs. Because of this predators will, for the most part, leave them alone. Those that do try to attack a Kakakuona have, not only their armored plating to contend with, but their large, sharp claws as well. These claws are not only for defense, they make for great digging tools as well. Kakakuonas live in large underground complexes that they dig out with their sturdy claws.
