Fossil
Fossils are the preserved remains of a prehistoric plant or animal, encased in rock over thousands of years. They exist as items in the Animal Crossing series, and up to 5 are generated each day at 6am, the quantity depending on weather and the game. They are buried under starfish-shaped cracks and must be dug up with a shovel. Although items can be manually buried on a beach with a shovel, fossils never generate there.

Fossils remain as a blue piece of rock with an ammonite and stars engraved on them (i.e. "Unidentified") until assessed. In GCN fossils must be mailed to the Faraway Museum for identification. In Animal Crossing: Wild World Blathers was authorized to identify fossils, and continues to do so in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Fossils are one of the collections in the Museum. In Wild World, there are 52 fossils to be collected. Unidentified fossils count as trash items in all games except Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where they can be sold for 100 Bells at Re-Tail.

Fossils as Furniture Items

Fossils may also be displayed in one's house and provide large boosts for HRA scoring. Stand alone fossils (trilobite, egg, amber, etc.) provide small boosts, skulls provide a big boost and a completed skeleton gives the highest. As furniture, all fossils have either Old School (Wild World), Retro (City Folk), or Quirky (New Leaf; excludes stand-alone fossils, which have no theme) genres.

Cyrus in Animal Crossing: New Leaf will accept completed fossil sets and will turn them into mini-models for use in the home.
