Re:Beetle Temple: Animal Door/Gear Puzzle

I have found all the animals, as well, but cannot find the ROCKET in the last screen - I also have one gear left over that won't fit with the rest of the gears on the third screen.

I have clicked on all of the "shapes" to change them, but am not sure what shape each should be.

Has anyone solved this puzzle?

I can't seem to get the gears in the final room to "grind" together. Help?

I've solved the animals & the gears, but now I'm stuck. I've got 1 thing left to find. The comb. Can't find it and am assuming I need it to move on. Please help!!

Someone said the fish is in the last room, but there's no door in the last room, just a stone wall, the second room is full of gears and I see no door, and the first room has the dragonfly over the door. I have clicked all over the room with the symbols (the gate) but still can not find it.....

you have to move the gears to find the fish......it is hidden until you do.

pains viandes, it sounds like you mean the gopher? If yes, then you need to go to a different map location and pick up gopher food. Once you have it in inventory, go back to the map where the gopher lives. Pick up the food from inventory and click it on the gopher hole. Then, click on the gopher when he pops up.
When you see a blue item on your list of hidden items, it means you need an item from inventory to help you get to the blue item. When you move your cursor over your screen and it turns sparkling and blue, that means you need to apply an item from inventory at that location. You may have to move back and forth within 3, 4, or 5 maps to find and apply inventory items to the blue cursor areas.
Happy Gaming.

With the help of you all, I finally got all the gears in the last scene (I had a heck of a time to find the fish and complete that level).
However, now I'm stuck with the gears - I can't get the two in the upper left corner to move along with all the others - even though they seem to interlock. Any help in what I'm doing wrong?

Please Help-it's a rare sunny day in Seattle and I am inside trying (after working all day) to get the stupid gears to mesh, been trying off and on for days... maybe someone could simply color code the order, ie - from large to small there are - 2 green, 1 yellow, 1 blue, 1 reddish/blue, 2 purplish - from left to right, what order???? Thanks so much - I am ready to throw my computer into the trash!!! (But I do love this game!)

Not sure if I've done something wrong or what...I got to the gears door, found the gears, put them in so that they interlocked, four blue lights under the beetle hieroglyph lit up, beetle lit up, pretty blue! when I turned the crank: the little beetle happily waved its antennae and the gears all moved, but the door did not open. I turned the crank clockwise awhile (like 20 times), then for kicks turned it counter-clockwise awhile (ditto), and the door did not open. What have I missed? Do I need to turn the handle in some special combination or something? Help will be much appreciated!

Can anyone tell me where to find the butterfly? I search and search the rooms and just can't find that one.
Thanks

...Cat, is it possible you still have something in inventory? Or an item left to find in one of the other maps?

I finally got through the gear puzzle at the end. I can't remember where all the gears went, but I do remember that the blue gear belongs in the middle near the top. One of the little purple gears goes in the middle on the right side and it only connects to ONE gear (the existing one on the right lower part). The two green gears go to the right of the existing gear on the left, the red gear to the right of that and the left of the existing gear in the middle. The yellow goes to the top right of the existing gear in the middle. I made a diagram of these, but when I figured out the last two it all went so fast I can't remember where they went. However, once you place most of them, crank the lever that makes the bug on the left move and it will show you blue lights. When I had three lights, I clicked "hint" (because I was so frustrated) and it threww the two gears I had in the wrong place back into the inventory. After that it was pretty much just trial and error.
I know this sounds confusing, but maybe it'll help some of you.

The butterfly is on the 3rd map on the lower left side.

In order to see the whale you have to solve the gear puzzle on the 3rd map. That one is tricky - you have to put them down in the right oder, if you don't they won't fit, even if they DO fit. Bwhhaaahhhh......

I can't find the whale shape either! I think he is supposed to be in the room with the frog as the other rooms all have 2 symbols. I am stuck on this level because the room or "map" with the snake and butterfly keep asking for items that are supposed to be on or near the wall. I can't locate any of them like the trident, whisk broom, spade, skull, axe and more. These are all shown to be on the wall when I click on the clues.
I am not getting anywhere. I tried uninstall and reinstall thinking the game might be corrupt, but it's the same old thing. Help

...I'm not sure about all of the items, but I know the trident is behind the wall. If the items are blue, you can't just find and click them, something additional is needed. To open the wall, you need to use the 4 gears on the gear box. Hope that helps.

I'm stuck with the damn gears too! They are all in correctly, turning the handle backwards/forwards moves the gears (with dust falling) and the beetle lights up here and there and clicking the "hint" button got me absolutely NO WHERE!

So now what? I've figured out everything else up to this point, but this one has got me stumped.
