Forager: Where to Find the Dino Egg


GamingForager: Where to Find the Dino Egg

The Dino Egg is an item in Forager that you will require in order to complete the Archaeology Bundle in the Museum. You will only require one, any you find after that can be sold to a Market for a large amount of coins.

There is a bit of randomness, or RNG when it comes to finding the Dino Egg. But not as much as the Golden Egg luckily. To find the Dino Egg, you will need to do some digging, which means you will need to unlock the Farming Skill so that you have access to the shovel.

Below, you can find a short guide for finding the Dino Egg in Forager. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, you can view our dedicated area here!

Finding the Dino Egg

As mentioned previously, you will need to do some digging, specifically in the Fire Biome. The Fire Biome is the last biome you will likely unlock, due to the lands being the most expensive. 

Using your shovel on the hot-bar, hit any dig spots you find (check below for tips on finding dig spots). You will find rocks, gems, sand and other materials. Whilst there is a small chance of finding the Dino Egg item.

On the screenshot below, you can see that I found 2 Eggs at once. So the chances of finding them aren’t too hard. However, you can also see on the image that the land I am standing on is surrounded by dig spots.

Dig Spots are small circular shapes on the ground, although you can dig on any land. You will need to specifically dig at Dig Spots to find the archaeology items. If you’re struggling to find Dig Spots, then there is something you can do to help.

Find More Dig Spots

There is a way to turn an entire land into Dig Spots with the use of Shrines. If you don’t have Shrines yet, you will need to unlock the ‘Faith’ skill, which will allow you to build them. 

Place a Shrine on one of the Fire Biome lands and activate it. Now the buffs you can choose from is completely random, so you can either build multiple shrines or wait for them to rest. However, you’re looking for the ‘Excavator’ buff.

When you choose this buff, the land around you will be filled with Dig Spots. I highly recommend you upgrade your shovel to the best you can, as you will be able to dig massive areas (around 16 blocks) at once. Rinse and repeat this process until you find the egg.
