Subnautica features two types of Subnautica Eggs in the game. Below you will find details of all the Subnautica Eggs found in the game and what you can do with these eggs.
These eggs are not for display and if kept safe in alien containment chambers, they will hatch and young creatures from the world of Subnautica will be born. Each egg has their own hatching time while the most an egg will take to hatch will be three days while some even hatching before that.
You can allow these tiny critters to grow in aquariums or pick them up and place them in the water outside. This will turn them into adults instantly.
These hatched creatures are friendly and will not attack them even if their normal wild variants attack you. This is a good trick if you have to wait to scan a sandshark or a stalker.
Eggs are located in the same biome in which that specific species is located. You can also break the eggs using knives and other melee weapons but breaking will do you no good. It will only waste the egg.
Eggs are divided into two categories i.e. Normal Eggs and Unique Eggs. Let us now look at the eggs that can be found in the world of Subnautica. Before we begin, do make sure to check out our Beginners Guide for some more help.
