Egg Cave is quite the happening place! Visit our blog for the latest updates on everything new that we add to the site — new creatures, exciting worlds, account updates, and unique activities to do!
This creature may be a visitor that comes from unknown depths, created by an ecological disaster. Find this creature in the Cave for Creature Release Week. This is the fourth creature.
The Mothman is an ominous creature that is reportedly seen prior to a large disaster. It is one of the most popular creatures discussed among Ark's ever-growing community of cryptid enthusiasts, many of whom desire to see this flying red-eyed omen for themselves in spite of the tragedy that may follow.
Catch a glimpse of the Mothman in the Cave as part of Creature Release Week.

The name Dropalla comes from the fact that these vicious, nocturnal bears wait high up in trees and drop down to attack you with their enormously large claws and teeth when you're directly underneath them. Like other cryptids... is their existence really proven to be true though?
Find the Dropalla in the Cave as part of Creature Release Week.
If you've never experienced Creature Release Week before, get ready! Each day for the next week, we'll be releasing one brand-new species in the Cave for you to find and adopt. The final day of Creature Release Week is the 8th day, when all creatures are available from the Cave. Will you collect them all?
All creature stages will be revealed at the end of the week. The rest are hidden with the exception of the Hoddel (already known in the CDWC). Cave attempts are increased to 25 per day but will return to the normal 10 attempts per day after the final (8th) day.
THIS IS CREATURE RELEASE WEEK 2019: CRYPTIDS! WELCOME!
Cryptids are creatures who are rumored to exist but haven't been proven to exist by scientific observation. The Kraken would be an example of this.
Based off the Hodag, this is the Hoddel. It was discovered by some Arkian scientists in the shallow swamps of Ark. Many thanks to @firedawn for writing the winning CDWC description (the first Hoddel in existence has been added to your account for free).
Cave attempts have been fixed and now allow you to visit 25 times per day without a wait. After that, it's the normal wait time.
It's the second Sunday of the month... for today you can earn double the Egg Coins for feeding creatures everywhere on the site. So, start visiting your friends' profiles and take advantage of it!
It's time for some songbooks! Check out these brand-new Songs of Ark volumes that are now restocking at the Leila Library.
This Creature Release Week 2019 species is available for writing in the Creature Description Writing Contest. The winner will receive the first of its kind.
Creature Release Week returns on January 14. Does anyone want to guess what this year's theme will be?
The following 8 Cash Shop Travels will be retiring from the Cash Shop on January 10 at 11:59 PM ECT. If you plan on getting one of these, do so before then!
