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

Twitter user @mikeyturvey 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. Some of our favourite discoveries include: The New Horizons player who found out that you can actually craft side-by-side with your villagers, another who found a clear Lord of the Rings reference hidden in the game, and that you can actually control the Football fish from outside of its tank

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. It’ll be interesting to see if the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons cooking recipes will play into this in-game seasonal holiday.

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 GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
