A new face on the blog! I’m not a permanent member of Slippery’s blog, but I’m guest posting here for this week’s mystery!
This mystery goes all the way back to the very 2nd Island – Shark Tooth Island. On it, you learn a few things about it’s history:
- Professor Hammerhead discovered the island and it’s ruins years ago. This island was abandoned some time before it was re-inhabited.
- The native islanders there found how to calm the shark using a special concoction.
- The Medicine Man will only talk to Native Islanders.
This said, we have some things to consider – primarily about the Medicine Man. Is he a native islander? He wears a grass skirt and will only talk to native islanders, which leads to the presumption that he is… but if he still is there, then where are the rest of the native islanders?
If Professor Hammerhead found the island’s ruins, how is the Medicine Man still up in his tree?
If you look closely, you can find some clues to solve the mystery, although I don’t have a conclusive answer yet. Let’s go over those.
Early Poptropica Island’s Microcosm
As seen on the map, instead of the Pilgrims’ houses, you can see a teepee. Does this mean that Early Poptropica tells a similar story to North America? And does this tie in with the islanders’ disappearance?
The bones of a great beast
Inside the temple on Shark Tooth Island, you’ll find a large golden statue of a shark, a pit, and the skeletal remains of a “great beast”. When you study this creature’s anatomy, you’ll start to notice how it doesn’t have any apparent legs, and actually looks very similar to the Great Booga Shark! This could mean a number of things, but I’m going to leave the theorizing up to you guys – for now.
Where did the native islanders go? Why is the Medicine Man still around? Does Shark Tooth Island have more in depth than we thought? Let me know what you think in the comments!
