    Fossil Locations - A Guide for Fossil Fighters (c) RED Entertainment
    _______________________________________________________________________
    
    This is a small location guide that Iím developing in order to be able 
    to locate the fossil that you desire easily.  This also contains some 
    extra information that Iíve discovered about red fossils and Jewels. 
    I hope that itís helpful! Itís my first FAQ, so donít go too hard on me 
    ~.~

    Section A. Version Information
    
    V 1.0 - 8/22/09 - All Vivosaur locations given.
    
    To follow:
    
    -- Jewels that can be found in each level. 
    -- Information on how to find the special "vivosaurs"
    
    
    Section B. Upgrades
    
    Get the upgrades for your sonar as soon as possible, as it makes it 
    far easier to find rarer fossils and fewer rocks
    
    -Monitor Upgrade 1 Ė Increases the size of your sonar.
    -Monitor Upgrade 2 Ė Max size for the sonar.
    -Fossils Filter Upgrade 1 Ė Lowers the chance of finding rocks.
    -Fossil Filter Upgrade 2 Ė Greatly lowers the chance of finding 
    rocks. I havenít found a rock since getting this upgrade.
    -Fossil Chip Upgrade 1 Ė Allows you to find 3rd fossil type.
    -Fossil Chip Upgrade 2 Ė Allows you to find last fossil type.
    
    
    Section C. Finding the fossil you want
    
    Often when you are digging up fossils, a fossil fighter will jump up 
    out of the hole that youíve just dug up and challenge you for the 
    jewel/fossil rock. Win and you get the rock.  Now, you will always 
    be challenged to fight if you find a jewel rock, but being challenged 
    for a fossil is much rarer. If you get challenged for a fossil, there is a 
    50% chance that that fossil is a rare Red Fossil. Red fossils are a 
    great way to easily get over 100% when you are cleaning the fossil 
    because they automatically give you a +25 point bonus. So fight for 
    those fossils!

    Full credit to RED Entertainment for coming out with such a great game.
    At first I thought it would be a simpler version of Pokemon/Digimon, but 
    this game has its own unique qualities that make it an excellent game to
    play.
