Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Gerudo’s Colossal Fossil Guide

Loone is a researcher who is fascinated by the ancient Leviathans that once roamed the land. She can be found near East Akkala Stable, where she will share her dream of seeing the third and final Leviathan fossil in the Gerudo desert. This will trigger the side quest “Gerudo’s Colossal Fossil”. To complete it, you will need to travel to the Gerudo Great Skeleton, a massive cave that contains the bones of a Leviathan. Loone will be waiting for you there, and she will point out that the Leviathan has a smaller skull next to it, which she believes belongs to its offspring. She wishes she could see the family reunion of the parent and child Leviathans. Hence, she will ask you if you could find the Child Leviathan Fossil. So, where is the fossil of the Child Leviathan in Zelda TOTK?

Where to Find Child Leviathan Fossil in Gerudo Great Skeleton Cave in TOTK

The good news is that “Gerudo’s Colossal Fossil” is inside the very same cave! However, you will need to find the two pieces of the skeleton – the tail and the body. The tail can be found in the back of the cave, near a small pond, below the massive Leviathan’s skeleton. The tail is covered with several mounds of sand. Check out our image below for the exact location. You will need to use a nearby Zonai fan to blow off the sand of the tail. Bring the tail near the child’s head, and now let’s search for the body.

For the body, you’ll need to use Ascend below the huge skeleton to reach its upper part. Once on its back, check out the ceiling, and you can see a small part of the skeleton protruding behind the rocks there. Blow up the stones with explosive arrows (fuse with Flower Bombs), and the small skeleton will fall to the ground. Finally, use the Ultrahand ability to connect the head with the body, and the body with the tail. When done, talk with Loone, and she will reward you with 50 rupees.
