Many of you have reported seeing in your friends’ towns a black “egg” with flies buzzing around it and asked whether that means your snake eggs are going to rot. You really don’t have to worry about that possibility, though, because what you’re seeing isn’t actually an egg.

The egg-shaped object is actually the Black Hole from the Halloween event. And those black dots around it are actually not flies at all – they’re matter being sucked in. The Black Hole appears in this season’s Halloween episode, so if and when you see the episode, you’ll understand exactly why it’s there, why it’s best paired with the Super Collider (also available only during the Halloween event), and why some of your friends may have fenced it off and put hazard warnings around it.

So, your eggs aren’t going to rot – that black “egg” you’ve been seeing is something completely different altogether.
