Now that it’s July, there’s a swarm of new fish and bugs to nab in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
There’s no rush to catch any of them, as they’ll stick around for much longer than a month, but make sure you donate any new finds to Blathers to complete your Museum. You can tell when you’ve caught a new creature because your character will exclaim “Yes!” before they say the bug or fish’s name.
You can also check in your Critterpedia to see if you’ve donated the bug fish or not. If you have, there will be a little owl icon next to the critter name. (Note that these emblems won’t show up if you’re on someone else’s island.)
Note that the Southern Hemisphere has no new critters to find this month. The Southern Hemisphere, which is in winter now, is mostly retaining their critters throughout the cold season.
On the flip side, the Northern Hemisphere has tons of cicadas and tropical fish to start finding in July.
