I don't know if this is intentional, but it seems like a lot.
So, when a grown pip dies it yields 1600 kcal meat, a drecko or hatch yields 3200 kcal (I think). But from three shove vole pups that hatched from eggs from the printer pod, 16,000 kcal each. That's a lot of meat. There might be one more zero than intended there.
Printer Pod offers 3 shove vole eggs wait for eggs to hatch attack critters to get meat
