The Spring Egg Hunt was an event in Animal Jam Classic that occurred during the month of April from 2011 through 2014, before it was replaced by the Spring Festival adventure in 2015. All Jammers could participate in this event. There were eight eggs in total to collect that were located in all lands (excluding Canyons Pathway in 2014). The prizes were always egg-themed items.

Egg Locations[]

Each of the lands contained a single unique animal nest with an egg icon hovering above it. Upon clicking on the icon, the player could view a fun fact about how the animal lays its eggs and then collect the egg for that area.

  • It is mostly nicknamed the Egg Hunt, Easter Hunt or Easter Egg Hunt instead of its proper name.
  • There is a glitch when all eight eggs are found but there is no prize; to prevent this, Jammers must manually travel around all the lands to find them rather than teleporting through the World Map.
  • Before Kimbara Outback was released, the egg for the coral snake was located in Canyons Pathway.
  • The nest in Crystal Sands was originally placed right next to Tierney's Aquarium.
  • The nest in Mt. Shiveer was originally located at the mysterious seal cavern.
  • There was no Spring Egg Hunt in 2010 because Animal Jam Classic was not around during Easter that year.
  • The format of this event resembles the Journey Book and Epic Plushie Scavenger Hunt since both reward the player for traveling around the lands and locating objects.
