# Animal trophies

Animal trophies are excavation hotspots at the Infernal Source - Vestibule of Futility south-east excavation site that players excavate after reaching level 81 Archaeology.

To reach them, select "3. The Source (Vestibule of Futility)" from the options when descending the lift at the Infernal Source Dig Site base camp, then proceed south and anticlockwise towards the east as shown in map.

The hotspots initially appear as fiery brimstone, requiring uncovering before becoming usable. Uncovering the hotspots yields a one-time reward of 211 Archaeology experience.
