Donation to the museum[]

In New Horizons[]

Upon donation to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers will say:

"Ah, yes, the juramaia: one of the first mammals, and one of the few to live alongside the dinosaurs! In order to hide from much larger dinosaurs, it was less than four inches long and quite unobtrusive. Some even theorize that these mammals were nocturnal until the dinosaurs went extinct. They needed every advantage to live among those behemoths. They were nocturnal before it was cool!"

The juramaia is on display in the southeast corner of the second fossil room, next to the Dimetrodon.
