The quarry just north of here is full of Deathclaws, so there's bound to be an egg or two in there somewhere. Of course, a Deathclaw egg from anywhere will do. According to my Aunt Rose, those things have a ridiculously long shelf life.

Jas Wilkins, Fallout: New Vegas

Deathclaw eggs are hard-shelled eggs laid by deathclaws.

Background

The existence of hard-shelled eggs confirms deathclaws to be oviparous, meaning they lay eggs containing developing embryos. They weigh approximately three kilograms (seven pounds) and are the size of a rugby ball. Because of the difficulty of obtaining these eggs, they are very pricey, but fortunately, the eggs take a long time to go bad.[1] A woman in Modoc is credited with first using deathclaw eggs to create an luxurious omelette around 2240.

Notes

  • Deathclaw eggs can also be seen in Fallout 3 inside the deathclaw pens in the Adams Air Force Base hangars; however these cannot be picked up or interacted with.
