Looks like fossils can now be miniaturized if you wish once you have all of the parts. Instead of donating or selling fossils, you can place them on a table or something in a miniature form!
Translation by Saratoga/mattmagician:
Hello! This morning I ran into somebody who found a fossil! They took it to the museum to identify it.♪ When that’s done, you can donate it, sell it, or keep it. I guess it really depends on the person. Recently though, it’s popular to collect all the parts of a dinosaur, and “remake” it into a model figure!
