Like every month at the beginning of May, the selection of animals changes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The insects and fish that you can catch this month and their location can be found in our practical list. And if you want to look up all the animals that are in the switch game, just take a look at our complete insect list with localities and our complete fish list with localities. Good luck with fishing and hunting!


May in Animal Crossing: Insects

Compared to April, which brought a lot of new fish and insects into the game at the beginning of spring, there are not quite as many new species in May. However, a couple of very beautiful and valuable butterflies are now traveling on your island and at night no more tarantulas do their mischief, but scorpions. Don't miss them and keep in mind that some insects need tree stumps to appear and that they are traveling at different times of the day. Good luck with the landing net!






Nice prospects: From May you will find new insects and fish on your island.



It's getting warmer, and new species will appear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from May.
