The Ralok egg is often seen as scary to anyone who may stumble upon it on the shores of Ark but really it is similar to a tadpole. It is completely harmless and about the size of a human hand. The egg has no senses yet but learns to swim as it gets closer to hatching. Because the egg can swim but has no way to detect danger, the Ralok mothers will dig shallow ponds in the shore of Ark Beach and lay her eggs inside it. This way, the eggs can learn to swim in a safe environment.
The egg itself is soft and smooth. The tail and fin wiggle and move even before the Ralok grows from an egg to an adolescent. The beautiful blue coloring of the egg match the color of the sea, camouflaging it to the water it lives in.
After about 30 days, the Ralok egg starts to grow into an adolescent Ralok. Its legs slowly emerge, as well as its face. This frog-like growth brings the comparison of the Ralok to a shark-frog hybrid.
Raloks are friendly creatures known to follow boats like dolphins do. They do not spend all their time in the water, though. They are adapted for life on land and in water. Raloks spend the day swimming in the ocean and catching fish and they rest on land overnight.
Raloks are celebrated as an example of the miraculous bonds that can form between people and animals. Raloks have been known to recognize faces and look for their human friends whenever they visit the shores of Ark.
