"Leviathan Bones" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


At Serenne Stable, Link can find Akrah, Garshon, and Onya discussing the remains of the leviathans.[2][3][4] Onya theorizes that they went extinct because of an ice age,[5] Akrah believes they went extinct because of a volcanic eruption,[6] and Garshon thinks the extinction occurred due to a drought.[7] When the three of them notice Link listening, Akrah explains that they are scientists trying to decipher the reason the leviathans went extinct.[8]

Unfortunately, the three have been unable to locate any leviathan remains, which means their claims have no evidence.[9] They do have an idea of where the remains can be found: the Eldin Mountains, Hebra, and Gerudo.[10] Since Link looks like an adventurer,[11] Akrah asks him to find the leviathan bones and bring them a Picture of them.[12] Specifically, he wants to see the heads of the skeletons,[13] and he promises Link 300 Rupees if he can do this for him.[14] When Link accepts, the Side Quest begins.

The Eldin Great Skeleton is located along the northern edge of Eldin. The Hebra Great Skeleton is found inside a cave under the Hebra North Summit. Finally, the Gerudo Great Skeleton is located in the southwest of the Gerudo Desert, near Dragon's Exile. Link must take a Picture of each of them for the Side Quest.

Link can show his Pictures to their corresponding researchers. Akrah wants to see the Eldin Great Skeleton,[15] Garshon wants to see the Gerudo Great Skeleton,[16] and Onya wants to see the Hebra Great Skeleton.[17] Each of them praise Link's Pictures and claim they will help with proving their theories.[18][19][20] They also ask Link to help the other scientists.[21][22][23]

Once all three Pictures have been shown, Akrah will thank Link and reward him with a Gold Rupee.[24] The Side Quest will end here, and the three brothers continue their debates.[25][26]


Stage Description
1 Akrah at the Serenne Stable asked you to get a visual record of the leviathan bones. The record need not have the whole skeleton in it, so long as the skull is visible.

Leviathan bones are apparently found in Eldin to the northeast, Hebra to the northwest, and Gerudo to the southwest.
Complete You took pictures of the leviathan bones in Eldin, Hebra, and Gerudo. As thanks for advancing the cause of paleontology, Akrah gave you 300 rupees.
