An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player has discovered a surprising issue that comes with displaying large fossils in their home.

Twitter user @mikeyturvey (opens in new tab) shared a video of a large fossil displayed inside a house and in first-person camera mode noticed that the dinosaur’s head actually breaks through into the second floor. Unfortunately, there’s been no follow-up since the original tweet so there’s been no confirmation yet as to whether the dinosaur’s head pops out on the second floor.

Since first person camera mode is a new feature that was added in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 2.0, we’re not sure if this is a new find or if this has always happened and we're only able to see it now. 

It’s this attention to detail that has charmed Animal Crossing: New Horizons players, who have been discovering little details like this since the game’s release back in March 2020.

In other Animal Crossing: New Horizons news, the annual Turkey Day is set to return tomorrow - November 25 - and will feature everybody’s favorite festive turkey, Franklin, who will host a Thanksgiving-inspired feast on the plaza.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
