The Wharf Roach (フナムシ, Funamushi) is a new insect in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. They can be found on the beach where it quickly scurries away when the player comes close and vanishes if chased too far.

Donating to the Museum

As with all insects in the Animal Crossing series, the Wharf Roach can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, who will give a small speech on it.

In New Leaf

Upon donation to the museum, the Wharf Roach can be found scurrying near the pond.

"Wharf roaches can be seen along the sea, usually just above the waterline on rocky cliffs. They feed mainly on microalgae and detritus that drift to the seashore, making them cleaners of sorts. They often move in groups and run away quickly when they hear people approaching."
