Bugs, Fish, Sea Creatures Leaving In May For Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Northern & Southern Hemisphere)

2 months ago 3 Comments

Summer is just around the corner as May comes to an end! In this guide, we’ll tell you every bug, fish, and sea creature departing from your island after May ends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH).

Each and every month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings a different set of fish, bugs, and sea creatures that can appear on your Animal Crossing island depending on the current month from the real-time clock.

That means some fish, bugs, and sea creatures currently found on your island right now will disappear becoming no longer obtainable when the month of May ends and June begins!

So if you want to catch every single creature to complete your NookPhone’s Critterpedia for getting golden tool items and donate every critter to the Museum, it’s important to know which critters are leaving and making sure you catch them before May ends.

This guide covers both the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere islands — you’ll find the Southern information below the Northern sections.

Finally, it’s worth noting that this guide includes creatures that may have already left at a previous point in the year. We write these guides inclusive of no matter when someone may have started playing or taken a break, so repeats will show up sometimes!
