‘Animal Crossing New Horizons’ June update: bugs, fishes for Northern Hemisphere players

A new month means new opportunities to collect fishes and bugs for the museum in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Now that it’s June, players have more than the wedding event to be excited about.

Each month, there are new animals and bugs that spawn on islands in Animal Crossing New HorizonsOf course, there are a few creatures that will be leaving as well. Those that want to fill up their museums should ready their bug nets and fishing rods as they’re going to have to grind to get all of these newly available creatures.

This time, we’re focusing on the additions on islands in the Southern Hemisphere. The winter season is approaching this hemisphere, so there aren’t much in terms of new creatures.


There are three fishes that can be found by the sea all day long. First is the sea butterfly that has a tiny shadow. Players can farm these creatures that sell for 1000 bells each, and they are easy to come by as well. Another creature that players can get from the sea is the squid, which has a medium-sized shadow.

For players looking to earn a huge sum of bells, they should definitely look for a huge shadow on the sea as this could be an Oarfish. These sell for 9,000 bells, but they are hard to find. As such, players should ready their fish bait for better chances of getting this fish.

The two new other fishes are the pond smelt, which has a small shadow. It is found in the river all day long. The other is the stringfish, which is found in the clifftop river between 4PM to 9AM. This is one of the most expensive fishes in Animal Crossing New Horizons as it sells for 15,000 bells.


In terms of new bugs, there are only three new ones to be found in June. First is the emperor butterfly found flying on the island from 5PM to 8AM. It’s not that rare, and it sells for 4,000 bells.

Then from 8AM to 5PM, players can spot the Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing, which can be sold for 2,500 bells. Lastly, players can find dung beetles rolling snowball on the ground all day long. They sell for 3,000 bells, so they are a good find as well.

These new creatures in Animal Crossing New Horizons won’t last too long, so players should catch them as soon as they can.
