The Walking Leaf (コノハムシ, Konohamushi) is an uncommon insect that was introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk. They are found from July to September, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be found in all weather (rain and sun). They camouflage themselves as furniture leaves (though appear a lighter shade of green) on the ground, but when approached they will flip over and reveal themselves. They are sold for 600 Bells.

Donating to the museum

In City Folk

Upon donation to the Museum, Blathers the curator will say:

"As you can see, walking leafs are extremely proficient at mimicking the appearance of leaves. What torments me is this: they also EAT leaves... Do they look at one another and think, "mmmmmmmm"?"

After donation, the Walking Leaf can be found on the middle-terrace of the insect exhibition, in the central enclosure near the eastern-most tree stump, sharing its enclosure with the Grasshopper.

In New Leaf

Upon donation to the museum, the Walking Leaf can be found in the upper right corner of the upper right room of the Insect section. The exhibit has this to say about the Walking Leaf:

"Walking leaves look just like real leaves. They're related to walking sticks, which resemble twigs. The females are better at mimicking than the males, though they can't fly. Their mimicking is so thorough that some of them even have fake bite marks on their bodies."

Further information

Walking leafs can disguise themselves so well that some even show signs of fake bite marks, to further confuse predators. When they walk, they sway to mimic a leaf being rocked by the wind. They can be found in South/Southeast Asia to Australia.
