Apparently somebody found a gigantic "whale" fish shadow on their island.

I was one of the nay sayers that said the original GC whale was fake, i was really convinced it was fake too until someone posted video.

Considering how easy it is to take pictures in this game, i'd expect more than one picture, THAT makes me think it's fake honestly. Cause i'd flip out and mash the LR buttons hella times :/


THAT is a really good point... Did she not have her SD card on her or something??? How do you not know how to take pictures in this game? I do it on accident like daily.

While I doubt it, i'm going to say it's real just because I want to see that thing.

Well to be fair, videos can pretty easily be faked too (since people brought up the GC version)...

Either way if it's faked (which is just so super easy nowadays to do) or a glitch it's probably not meant to be there. If it's meant to be there we'll hear from Nintendo soon I'm sure.

No. I've caught like 4 or 5 Coelacanths, and none of them had shadows that large. Besides, it's not raining in the pic.

I take it you've never seen or caught a coelacanth in this or any other AC game before.

that's wrong.

i've caught one. it's definitely not THAT huge. the coelacanth is about the size of a shark, except without a fin, and slimmer than a shark as well.

It would be really cool if it was real and could be added with a patch or DLC or something.

Tis is true, and as already pointed out it clearly is not raining so it couldnt be one.

It's the rare Giant Shrimp

Apperently it's only exclusive to the American and European versions. I guess it makes up for losing 2 fish?
