This small pink egg is about the size of a lime, and has an earthy smell to it.

Natives of Foenara, valembats are typically found deep in underground burrows within the Grass Forest. While not inherently foul-tempered, valembats tend to be solitary and territorial, except during their short breeding season that occurs every two years. Male valembats prepare for this time by digging out the reddest roots and tubers, which pigment their fur a bright pink color when eaten. The males with the brightest and pinkest coats attract the most mates. About two weeks before the start of the breeding season, all of the valembats begin the short migration to the hill on the edge of Foenara, disregarding farms and villages as they make their march to their traditional breeding grounds. The ground in the particular hills when the valembats congregate are soft, with layers of ash mixed in with the soil, and provides an excellent substrate in which the female valembats can build temporary nesting burrows. The males leave soon after mating, but the females stick around, using the safety of their numbers to deter predators while they raise their joeys.
