9 Species of Oviparous Animals

Bald Eagles

Only one of two to three Bald Eagle eggs generally survives to adulthood. After hatching, parents feed chicks constantly. The strongest eagle chick starves the others.


Cardinals have red feathers. Seeing a cardinal means deceased loved ones are with you. Cardinals lay 2-5 eggs at a time, and while it's unlikely that all will survive, merely one is rare.


Great Whites deliver live birth. Several lay eggs. Sharks lay eggs. 40% of sharks spawn. Unusual shark eggs. False. Strange, waterproof shells. Some have twisting shapes like aquatic pasta, while others have spiky growths.


Some snakes, like sharks, give live birth. Snakes generally deposit eggs. Nonvenomous colubrids, including kingsnakes and rat snakes, lay eggs. Elapids, such as cobras, are egg layers.


Egg-laying lizards. Most lizards lay eggs, not live young. Few lizards protect eggs. The mother builds a nest and leaves. So does the Komodo dragon. Komodo dragon hatchlings must beware of cannibalism.


Spiders lay eggs in massive webbing sacs. This protects them while eggs grow. They hatch all at once, and the spiderlings scatter to find a new home. In some spider species, baby spiders grow with the mother.


Queens deposit eggs. many eggs Each egg takes a second or two to lay, so a queen can lay 2,000 in a day. In the honeycomb cells, the eggs hatch into larvae that are fed by worker bees.


Queen ants can lay thousands of eggs a day. You'll see ants if you split apart an anthill. Ant workers will rush to return eggs to the nest. Eggs are little, white items carried by other ants.


Dragonflies hatch like frogs and salamanders. Larvae hatch from water-deposited eggs. Dragonfly larvae are unrecognisable. Unlike worms or grubs, dragonfly larvae resemble adult water insects.
