Fossils – Animal Crossing: New Horizons Wiki Guide


Last Edited:

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, four to five fossils can be dug up each day. The fossils that appear are random, and there is no way to guess which will appear. There are small fossils (one stand-alone part) and large fossils (multiple parts). Fossils can then be donated to the Museum or sold – but only after they are identified and appraised by Blathers.

How to Dig Up Fossils[edit]

You won’t be able to dig up fossils when you first arrive at your deserted island – in fact, you wont even be able to find them at all.

First, you must entice Blathers to come to your island by catching 5 fish or bugs to give to Tom Nook, who will convince Blathers to set up a tent. Once he arrives, speak to him to gain a Vaulting Pole recipe to cross the river where fossils appear, and also the shovel recipe to dig up these fossils. Note that once you begin digging them up, they’ll start to appear all over the island – not just across the river.

Blathers will then identify and take donated fossils – although they will not be displayed until you can get a permit to construct an actual museum – which needs 15 more donated items.

List of Fossils[edit]

Listed below are all the fossils, in alphabetical order, as well as a checklist of each individual fossil piece.

Can’t find all four fossils? They won’t appear immediately behind trees or buildings, but try digging behind bushes or placed furniture!
