Hornsby is a lazy rhino villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name is a play on the horn on his head. Although his files from Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer can be found, Hornsby is absent from that game.

In New Horizons, Hornsby has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.


Hornsby in Animal Crossing.


Hornsby is a blue rhino with yellow horns and pink ears with smaller black insides. Hornsby also has black eyes pointing in opposite directions, which appear to be pointing to his back when viewed to the side. On the back of Hornsby's head is dark blue stripes.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.

As a lazy villager, Hornsby has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Hornsby goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
