At the museum[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

When donating to Blathers in Animal Crossing, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"Hoo, I say! Woo hoo! A fossilized footprint. Looks like some paleontology is afoot! Hoo hoo hoo! But truly, this is quite an earth-shaking find! I've never seen a specimen that can match it in beauty. The distinct three-toed foot tells us that this is the print of a theropod from...perhaps the Jurassic period, eh wot? It's impossible to discern anything more specific, but speculation is free, and a vital part of paleontology. Imagine a terrible carnivore stalking its prey... Its great weight pressing down into the earth...and...voila! History! Hoo, aren't I the blatherer! I beg your pardon, please! I do hope I didn't put you into a comatose state!"

In Wild World[edit]

When donating to Blathers in Wild World, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"Hoo, I must applaud this find! The fossil's condition simply could not be better! Based on the shape, I can only suspect this is the footprint of the T-rex! Unlike with bones, we can see the foot's shape, size, texture, and more! Why, we can even deduce how fast it ran! Hardly just any old footprint, eh wot? Hoo! I'm frightfully sorry! The thought of such mighty feet agitates me to no end!"

The Dinosaur Track can be found in the second room of the fossil exhibit in the museum.

In City Folk[edit]

The Dinosaur Track in the museum in City Folk.

When donating to Blathers in City Folk, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"Why, I'd say this was the footprint of the mighty T.Rex! But don't just scoff as if this is any old footprint! Morso than even bones, dinosaur tracks provide us with a plethora of interesting information. Hoo, Yes, for example, they tell about the creature's skin locomotion speed, wot! HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I...I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"

In New Leaf[edit]

After donating the fossil in New Leaf, its plaque in the museum will read:

"Unlike other fossils, fossilized foot-prints give us a glimpse of how the creature in question actually lived. Thanks to modern science, we can determine quite a lot about the particular gaits of some creatures. This includes how they supported their weight, their posture when walking, and even walking speed."

In New Horizons[edit]

When donating to Blathers or selecting "Tell me about this!" in New Horizons, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"Dinosaur tracks are fossilized footprints left on the bottom of the sea or on soft earth. From these fossils, we can deduce the creature's territory range as well as its relationship with its herd... It has even become possible to work out the creature's size, distinctive gait, and, shockingly, walking speed! These trace fossils are like social-media feeds, enabling us to follow the daily lives of the dinosaurs!"

The Dinosaur Track can be found in the second room of the fossil exhibit in the museum.
