When carrying Bunthoff eggs home, be careful as to which surfaces the egg touches, because these eggs have a very dirty, chalk-like powder that rubs off. Due to the unique mixture of oils within this powder, it is incredibly difficult to wash the dirt off with soap and water. These eggs are pretty rare too. They are typically found buried in the Egg Cave, so it's best to dig if you want one of these eggs.
Bunthoff live underground near The Volcano. Bunthoff have managed to dig an impressive network of tunnels surrounding The Volcano. Their main colony is adjacent to the main vent of The Volcano. The most horrid Bunthoff disasters in history have occurred when The Volcano has erupted and blown holes in the vent pipeline, which has flooded the Bunthoff colony with molten lava. Over time, Bunthoff have evolved and can sense a volcanic eruption days before it occurs. This is why the Science and Research Center in Ark City monitors Bunthoff colony activity; if they abandon their colony, Ark City needs to be prepared for what is about to come.
