Completing the Plesiosaur

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, once the plesiosaur exhibit is complete, Blathers will give the player information about the creature through the following dialogue.

"At last! At last! Huzzah! The plesiosaur is... complete! I never thought I would live to see this day! It's fantastic! Brilliant! A wonderful, joyful occasion! Delight ripples through my body and soul! But I'm getting carried away. Now then, where shall I begin with these leviathans? The great plesiosaurs... In actuality, plesiosaurs were not dinosaurs, but aquatic reptiles, which ruled the seas during the Mesozoic era. There were two main types of plesiosaurs, both of which had broad bodies, four large flippers, and short tails. The two groups were distinct in that one had long necks and small heads, the other short necks and large heads. The plesiosaurs ranged in size from 8 to 46 feet long, and their diets consisted of fish and other marine creatures. The first plesiosaur fossil was discovered in 1824, and subsequent findings have been made on every continent. Incredible, eh wot? Indeed! What I wouldn't do to dig one up myself! The thrill! Where in blazes is my shovel? Hoo hoo hoo! Oh, my! I must beg your pardon. The very idea of field work gets my crumpets toasting!"

In Wild World

Upon completion of the plesiosaur exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"This creature emerged toward the end of the era of the dinosaurs... To be accurate, it was not a dinosaur but rather a type of long-neck reptile. The first plesiosaurus fos'il was found 35 years ago by a high-schooler! Amazing! I shan't tell you what MY greatest high-school accomplishment was... Wouldn't it be wonderful to discover a new fossil?! I hope to...someday."

In City Folk

After donating all of the pieces of the plesiosaur to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

"The plesiosaurus appeared toward the end of the dinosaurs' days on earth. It was a reptile that lived in the ocean, and it's called "the long-necked dinosaur" in Japanese. Indeed, someone named Suzuki found the first one and named it that... But you see, he was still a high-school student when he discovered the fossils. He quickly became the neighborhood hero, wot!"

In New Leaf

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

"While not a dinosaur itself, the plesiosaur, a marine reptile, did live alongside the dinosaurs. These creatures could reach lengths of 23 feet or longer, the bulk of that being their necks. Plesiosaurs are commonly mistaken for certain kinds of mythical sea monsters, such as "Nessie.""
