Fossil (New Leaf icon)
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 6 AM, the quantity depending on weather and the game. They are buried under starfish-shaped cracks and must be dug up with a shovel.

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

Fossils are one of the collections in the Museum. In Wild World, there are 52 fossils to be collected. In New Leaf, there are 67 fossils. Unidentified fossils count as trash items in all games except 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 boost. As furniture, all fossils are either Old School (Wild World), Retro (City Folk), or Quirky (New Leaf, excluding stand-alone fossils which have no theme or genre.

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