ARKive's Easter Egg Hunt

A dozen free range ‘eggs’ have been laid around the ARKive website for you to dig up using your eggspert knowledge!

It’s easy to play along:

  • Unscramble the first cryptic clue to lead you to the correct page on ARKiveARKive's Golden Egg
  • Find the egg and break it open to eggspose the next clue
  • Crack all of the clues until you reveal. . .
  • The final Golden Egg
  • Collect a special twibbon to show your friends what an egghead you are!


If you only make it half-a-dozen-way through and need to take a break, you can save the latest webpage in your ‘favourites’ and continue the egg hunt later.

Here’s your first clue:

“Watch this eggstreme angler video! Is this bird of prey the ultimate fisher?”

Do you eggcept the challenge, or will you chicken out?! If you’re finding it extraordinarily challenging, you can ‘like’ us on Facebook to get some eggclusive eggstra clues!

Good luck and let us know how you get on!

    It sounds like fun! and it HAS been AGES since I went on a Easter Egg Hunt–so why not!? I love Arkive photos, videos, and info!
    Good Luck to everyone who tries!

    I started the Easter Egg Hunt–and Right away I was having fun–and of course seeing great pics + learning new things! I was able to collect Eggs # 1-7 pretty quickly–then… I THINK I have the right answer–but there are no pics of it on Arkive–and the related species is “No Egg” so I must be wrong??? I am stuck–and I’d like to finish– I WAS enjoying the Egg Hunt + having fun~
    ANY WAY I can get some help or a clue sent to me?? Thank you!
