| Type of geography
, also called a holding pond
, is the smallest body of water in a Animal Crossing series town
. It is the small patch of water that would probably fit inside a six-by-six sized room in the player
's house. There are usually two ponds in every town, with some towns having a third or fourth depending on the layout, and some towns having only one. The fish are small and not worth much. Only two bugs are found in ponds; the pondskater
and diving beetle
. Some fish are exclusively found in them, though, including the Crawfish
, but are sold for little as well. No fish will appear in holding ponds during winter
, but trash
can still be caught.
