The Fossil Isle Excavation, also known as the Fossil Isle Event, is an event in Adopt Me! that started on October 2, 2020, to celebrate the Fossil Egg's release. The Fossil Egg was released on October 10, 2020, after the event ended.

Activities

Finding Fossils

Fossils can be found in the excavation zone and can be excavated using one of the tools provided at the entrance of the Fossil Isle. These tools are not tradeable and are only kept in the players' inventory until they leave the server. Players can only dig up a limited number of fossils in a day, and only one of each type of toy.

Analyzing Fossils

Once players have found a new fossil, they can go to an NPC named Henry, who will analyze it and give the player a new preview of one of the pets in the Fossil Egg afterwards.

Animal Discoveries

After analyzing the fossils, players will discover a new animal. This is a list of each animal discovered per day. Each day up to October 7, there will be two animals discovered.

After October 7, there were no more animals to discover, but players could still dig for toys.

Trivia

  • The Christmas Egg is the only other egg that went with an event; the Fossil Egg is the first Gumball Machine Egg to be a part of an event.
  • After a player digs up a lot of toys, they get a message saying "There is nothing left to dig" whenever they try to dig, and they can't get any more toys. Even after the 20-hour fossil cap is up, there is still the cap on toys.
  • There are two new NPCs called Henry and Rachel.
  • Two reoccurring NPCs are Tom and Burt.
    • Tom is a time traveler and was previously found in the Pet Shop before gamepass pets were introduced. At Fossil Isle, he stands near the helicopter and greets the player.
    • Burt is the shopkeeper for the Camping Store. At Fossil Isle, he appears behind the tree saying, "Deenosores aren't reel ya know. That bone from giant. Watch out for beenstork..."
  • There is a new area featuring a large waterfall and a helicopter landing pad. The pad was teased on the official Adopt Me! Twitter and shown on the YouTube video to the right.
  • The Bone Xylophone makes the same noise as the Steel Drum.
