This is the fourteenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. This puzzle will be accessed automatically while listening to Mr. Collins' class. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which fish produced the bite marks in the fossil.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The first thing to notice is the number of tooth marks. There are six, three on each side. That must mean the fish that made this bite mark has three pairs of teeth.

Hint Two
    Compare the three fish. Each of them has three pairs of teeth on either the upper jaw or the lower jaw.

    C has rounded teeth, but that doesn't necessarily mean it couldn't make this bite mark.

    Is there anything else about the fish that sets them apart? Maybe the position of the teeth?

Hint Three
    Take another look at the fossil. If the fish had this object in its mouth and bit into it, wouldn't it have made more tooth marks toward the edge?

    Unless it had teeth arranged so that there wouldn't be tooth marks on the edge of the fossil...

Super Hint
    If the fish had a mouth full of teeth, there wouldn't be such a gap between the tooth marks and the edge of the object after it was bitten.

    This fish must not have had any back teeth.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Don't worry too much about the shape of each fish's teeth.

[edit] When Completed


The answer is A.

The shape of the teeth is irrelevant. Looking at the bite mark as a whole, you can see that only three pairs of front teeth made an impression, so only a fish without any back teeth could have made these marks.

[edit] Solution

Fish A made the bite mark.

[edit] Progress

400 Picarats and 65 Hint Coins.
