Evidence is given for the superlocalization of fracton wave-functions excited on two-dimensional percolating networks. It is shown that fractons are superlocalized as exp[−(r/ Λ (ω))d φ], where the exponent d φ takes the value of 2.3±0.1. Our result provides new insight into the underlying properties of fractons.
