Target lock: Ampilus egg

It is an Ampilus that has reverted to its
earliest form of development, no doubt
because of the effect of the Timeshift
Stone.
Even in its current state, it retains the
ability to generate powerful electrical
current at regular intervals.

My analysis indicates that you can
hit it with your sword when it is not
generating electricity. Also, you
can carry it with the Hook Beetle.

Ampilus Eggs are enemies found in Skyward Sword.

Ampilus Eggs have the ability to give off electricity, allowing them to shock Link if he comes into contact with them while they are electrified. Link can use these enemies to power the generators within Lanayru Desert during his mission to uncover the Lanayru Mining Facility. Ampilus grow from their larval stage of the Ampilus Egg very slowly. This is why the Timeshift Stones are able to convert them from one form to another without making them disappear in the past like all other monsters that are from the present.

Since the Ampilus Eggs give off an electric charge, Link should use the Hook Beetle to transport the egg. Sword slashes and throwing can also be used when the egg is not giving off a charge, but these tactics are riskier, especially in hero mode when they deal more damage.

Ampilus Eggs cannot be killed. The hard outer shell protects the soft body on the inside.
