Sheldon is a jock, squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name may refer to the shell of a chestnut, the nut of which he bears a resemblance to. His Japanese name is a combination of kuri, "chestnut," and risu, "squirrel." His initial catchphrase, "cardio," refers to aerobic exercise, reflecting his jock personality. His Japanese catchphrase, like his name, is a reference to chestnuts.



Sheldon is an orange squirrel with yellow accents and orange freckles on his cheeks. His eyes are a margin smaller than most other villagers’. He also has green eyelids along with with green fur inside his ears.
