Chaurus Eggs

Chaurus Eggs can be harvested from chaurus egg sacs, which can be found in high numbers in all Falmer hives. Chaurus, chaurus reapers, chaurus huntersDG, and chaurus hunter fledglingsDG also have a chance of dropping chaurus eggs. The eggs and sacs emit a pale blue bioluminescence making them easy to spot even in the darkness of caves.

Chaurus egg sacs

Chaurus, chaurus reapers, chaurus huntersDG, and chaurus hunter fledglingsDG have a 25% chance of dropping chaurus eggs, in addition to chaurus chitin and minor loot. Egg sacs, however, are the most common source of chaurus eggs, with 1593 egg sacs found in 21 different locations. Locations with the greatest numbers are:


  • Gianna says in a Dark Brotherhood quest that Chaurus Eggs can be added to soups "for additional flavor", though you cannot add them to food when cooking yourself.
  • The Green Thumb perk from the Alchemy skill line allows for an extra egg to be harvested from each egg sac, obtaining two eggs from each sac. In places with lots of egg sacs (such as Frostflow Abyss or Tovald's Cave), this will amount to an enormous number of eggs.
