The Horseshoe Crab (カブトガニ, Kabutogani) is a type of deep sea creature known as a Benthic, it is found at the bottom of the sea in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It is indicated by a circular shadow, and diving is the only way of capturing it.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

After donating the Horseshoe Crab to the museum, it can be found in a large pool in the first room of the Ocean exhibit, along with a number of other deep sea creatures. The exhibit has this to say about the Horseshoe Crab:

"Horseshoe crabs are called "living fossils," as they have not evolved since the age of the dinosaurs. Their back are covered by a hard shell, forming a simple silhouette with their flat backs and long tails. Though referred to as crabs, they're actually more closely related to spiders and scorpions.
