Lists by month[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • The minimum amount of in-game days required to complete the bug catalog in Animal Crossing: New Leaf without manually adjusting the game or system's clock is 165 (5 months, 1 week, and 5 days) if the player begins on the last day of June (6/30, the final appearance of the Firefly) and ends on the first day of snow coverage (12/11, the initial appearance of the Dung Beetle). Every other specimen is available at least one time in between these dates, and there are no particular bugs exclusive to the months of January through May.
