A perfect ovoid, it was shiny silver in color, and weighed about a hundred pounds. Its "skin" was composed of a hard metal of some kind, and proved extraordinarily resistant to damage. At random times, the egg sprouted skinny arms and legs, at which point it tended to run about blindly. A chime of opening proved sufficient to force the egg's limbs to appear. Whether or not the thing had any sensory capabilities remains a mystery. Though it could have mounted an attack with its frail little arms, the egg never really tried to hurt anybody.
