The Animal Crossing fossil represents the first identifiable peking man, with parts of its skull, lower jaw and some teeth showing through the soil.

Donation to the museum

In Wild World

When the player presents the peking man to Blathers at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Peking man is significant because he lived roughly 500,000 years ago... Hoo, well, that AND he is said to be a link between apes and humans, wot wot! What particularly fascinates me is the fact that he knew to use fire to cook. Of course, that's standard practice now, eh wot? But I assure you, it wasn't then! They say that this aided in brain development and was a remarkable breakthrough. Peking man's life span was a mere 14 years, so humans today would far outlive him. Oh! Please forgive me! The thought of this hairy ancient quite addled me!"

In City Folk

When the player shows Blathers the peking man in City Folk, Blathers will reply with the following dialogue.

"Woo hoot! A spectacular find indeed! The significance of Peking Man is the fact that he lived around 500,000 years ago, eh wot? Indeed, it's thought that he could be one of the links between humans and apes. This hirsute fellow used stone tools to hunt game, and he knew how to use fire to cook. Humans did a fair bit of changing after that, of course, but you can see the beginnings of greatness!"

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"Peking man was a hominid existing 500,000 years ago who used stone tools for crafting. He also hunted for animals, making him more a carnivore than an herbivore. Though not a direct ancestor of modern-day humans, interaction between the two was likely."

Peking man fossil can be found in the museum on the upper level, second fossil from the right (between the archaeopteryx and the fern fossil).
