Certain bugs or fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be leaving after April ends, making it the perfect time to go on the hunt for critters like Tarantulas, Blue Marlin and more.
Depending on which hemisphere someone inhabits in the game, different varieties of animals will be available to catch or take off until later in the year.
While the Northern and Southern Hemisphere differ in creatures, players looking to fill up their Critterpedia will need to make sure to check these animals off their list before the month is over.
Northern Hemisphere bugs and fish
The Blue Marlin and the Tarantula will be leaving after the month. Both of these creatures can yield huge selling prices, as those familiar with Tarantula Island runs would know.
No other insect from the North Hemisphere will be taking off at month’s end, but the Dab and Tuna will be swimming elsewhere until they come back in October and November, respectively.
|Insects Leaving after April|
|Tarantula||On the ground||7pm – 4am||8,000 Bells|
|Fish Leaving after April|
|Blue marlin||Pier||Huge||All day||10,000 Bells|
|Dab||Sea||Medium-small||All day||300 Bells|
|Tuna||Pier||Huge||All day||7,000 Bells|
Players will have all day to find Blue Marlins and Tuna located on the Piers, while Dabs can be found at sea.
Tarantulas can be found sporadically in between the times of 7PM and 4AM local times, but after the month they won’t return until November.
Southern Hemisphere bugs and fish
Players in the south end of the Animal Crossing world are facing a major exodus from both fronts at the end of April.
There’s going to be 10 different kinds of fish and bugs each that will be taking off before the start of May.
|Insects Leaving after April|
|Banded dragonfly||Flying||8am – 5pm||4,500 Bells|
|Bell cricket||On the ground||5pm – 8am||430 Bells|
|Darner dragonfly||Flying||8am – 5pm||230 Bells|
|Ladybug||On flowers||8am – 5pm||200 Bells|
|Man-faced stink bug||On flowers||7pm – 8am||1,000 Bells|
|Red dragonfly||Flying||8am – 7pm||180 Bells|

|Ribbon eel||Sea||Thin||All day||600 Bells|
|Snapping Turtle||River||Large||9pm – 4am||5,000 Bells|
|Tilapia||River||Medium-small||All day||800 Bells|
The biggest catches that won’t be available anymore are the Scorpions, Banded dragonfly, Snapping Turtle, and Mahi-mahi.
Anyone of those catches gives thousands of Bells each and are difficult to find, especially since some are tied to different periods of time throughout the day.
Players should definitely take note of which Animal Crossing critters will be leaving New Horizons, since you could wait about half a year before they make their way back to the game.
