What’s The Rarest Sea Creature In Animal Crossing?
The rarest sea creatures aren’t just called so for the fun of it. All of them are amazingly agile and will often dart away from your grasp in the blink of an eye. Players can use the same techniques that they follow while hunting down rare bugs. Take note of the availability of these creatures while you are trying to catch them.
The rarest sea creatures in Animal Crossing are as follows –
Gigas Giant Clam – The most valuable sea creature in Animal Crossing New Horizons sells for a staggering 15,000 Bells and it only appears as a giant shadow. It moves in quick long lunges and is found rarely. It is active at all times of the day and is available from May to September in the Northern Hemisphere while it will be available from November to March in the Southern Hemisphere.
Spider Crab – This rare deep-sea creature has a huge shadow and moves quite quickly. You will be able to find it at any time although you will be able to catch it when it’s mostly active – in the day (between 4 a.m. and 9 p.m.). The Spider Crab will be available in the Northern Hemisphere from March to April and in the Southern Hemisphere from September to October.
Giant Isopod – The Giant Isopod will get you 12,000 Bells but it is quite difficult to catch it in the first place. Players can find it only twice a day, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and then again from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. With a medium shadow and long lunges, the Giant Isopod can be caught from July to October in the Northern Hemisphere. It will also be available from January to April in the Southern Hemisphere.
Vampire Squid – This rare deep-sea creature will sell at 10,000 Bells and will be available from 4 p.m. to 9 a.m. each day. It can be found in the Northern Hemisphere from May to August and in the Southern Hemisphere from November to February.
Sea Pig – The Sea Pig sells for 10,000 Bells and can be recognized by its small shadow. It is quite fast and stays active during the evenings in the winter months from 4 p.m. until 9 a.m. Players will be able to find them in the Northern Hemisphere from November to February and in the Southern Hemisphere from May to August.
Red King Crab – The Red King Crab will get you 8,000 Bells and be available throughout the day in Northern Hemisphere from November to March and in Southern Hemisphere from May to September. It casts a large shadow and moves quite quickly.
