Eggipus Rex (はっけん！ たんけんベイビーＴ lit. Discovery! Baby T Expedition in Japanese) is the thirtieth level from Crash Bandicoot: Warped (unnumbered in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy). It is one of two optional levels in Warped, along with Hot Coco.
In this level, the player can ride Baby T (which is also seen in Dino Might!) through the whole level, which is set in the cave walls of a prehistoric swamp. However, if Crash hits an obstacle while riding Baby T, such as a pterodactyl, then he will have to continue the level alone, until reaching the next egg nest where Baby T can be mounted once again.
How to access
It can be accessed from the yellow gem path in Dino Might!, the eleventh level. The yellow gem is obtained via the alternate entrance to Hang'em High in the secret warp room, unlockable after collecting 10 relics.
During the triceratops chase in the yellow gem path, let the second pterodactyl carry the player away. The screen will fade and the player will be in Eggipus Rex.
In the original version, Crash needs to have no Aku Aku masks or else the hit will kill the pterodactyl.
- In the NTSC-U version of the game, when this level accessed through Dino Might! the relic times used for the time trial will be the same as that level and not the times listed here.
- This level's name is a pun on an Athenian tragedy by Sophocles, Oedipus Rex.
- Only Wumpa Fruit and lives are present in this level and there are no crates at all. It is the only level in the entire series (excluding bosses) to feature no crates at all.
- This is the only level where wumpa fruit do not disappear during Time Trial, although lives do. This is not the case in N. Sane Trilogy.
