The Giant Water Bug is a bug that was added in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It can be found floating on the water during the evening and early morning from April to September.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

"How to put this gently? Ah yes... BEWARE the giant water bug! I tell you, this vicious predator has been known to attack fish, frogs, and even snakes! SNAKES! Truth be told, no one is safe! Its nickname is 'the toe-biter,' for goodness sakes! Now, one final fact before I faint... The gruesome bug uses its nose...to inject its prey...with digestive juices. Hoo... Must stop thinking about...the unthinkable."

Once donated, the Giant Water Bug can be found floating among the reeds on the way to the butterfly room in the Bug Wing at the Museum.
