Donating to the museum[edit]

The Frog can be donated to the Museum as with other fish and insects. Blathers, the curator, will even give some information on the Frog.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"Greeeeeee! Gree! Gree! That's my best Sonoran green toad impression, wot! We do keep frogs and toads here. Well, then, let's get our amphibious friend settled. All the damp comforts of a home. Guaranteed."

The Frog sits on a lilypad on the top right tank in the aquarium upon donation.

In Wild World[edit]

"'This forgotten pond,
observed by a lonely frog,
drains slow, as my youth.'

"That was a haiku, eh wot? Rather an incomprehensable one, but one nonetheless. Many find frogs repulsive, but they're so prevalent, even poets sing of them!"

The Frog sits on a lilypad on the back tank of the first room in the aquarium upon donation.

In City Folk[edit]

"Fascinating... Were you aware that frogs make slight adjustments to their croaks to communicate? Hoo, they say many things to each other! For example, "ouch," "flee," "I like you ♥," and so forth. With enough practice, maybe I can learn to speak with our amphibian friends! ...Hoo-ribbit! Hoo-ribbit!"

The Frog appears in the middle-left tank on a lilypad floating on the surface. It makes no movements, other than croak and move with the lilypad.

In New Leaf[edit]

"These former tadpoles prefer to live near ponds and other damp and swampy places. They dwell on land, so they have lungs and skin as opposed to a set of gills. They like to stick close to water because they require a nice, moist lifestyle. Frogs are moist because they emit a liquid to protect their skin from dryness. If too much moisture evaporates from their thin skins, they could have trouble breathing. It's better not to handle frogs, as some species are poisonous, even to the touch!"

In New Horizons[edit]

"I understand that frogs converse with fellow frogs through a number of varied calls, as it were. Ribbit! My prince has arrived! Gribbit riiibbit! This pond is tragic! Ribbity rib't! I think you're splendid! Hoo hoo, of course I have no clue what they're saying, but I like to think that if I practice enough, I might!"

The frog can be found in the large recessed tank in the freshwater room of the fish exhibit, resting on a lilypad floating on the surface. It croaks periodically, but does not move otherwise.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Animal Crossing, upon catching the Frog, the player makes a comment about the Frog being warty, despite frogs having no warts. It is likely that it was confused with the toad.
