Finding Fossils

Seren Morgan-Roberts

Digging for Fossils!

To dig for fossils, you’ll first need to locate some star-shaped markings on the ground. Everyday, four new star-shaped markings will appear, so make sure you dig up every one everyday to maximise your fossil findings.

Firstly, you’ll need to equip your shovel and then line yourself up with the star-shaped marking on the ground. Press A to dig up the fossil. At first, the fossils will be unidentified, but you can take them to Blathers to be assessed! When your museum opens, you’ll be able to see the fossils exhibited. A lot of the fossils form larger dinosaur exhibits!

Youll need to get fossils assessed by Blathers in order to identify it.
