The Spotted Garden Eel (チンアナゴ, Chin'anago) is a type of deep sea creature only found in Animal Crossing: New Leaf; this game marks the first appearance of Spotted Garden Eels.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon donating a Spotted Garden Eel to the Museum, it can be found in the large pool in the first room of the Ocean exhibit, along with many other species of deep sea creature. It is found in the corner near the big rock close to the enterance of the large saltwater exhibit. The exhibit has this to say about the Eel:

"Spotted garden eels get their name from the black spots on their otherwise white bodies. They nest in the sandy seafloor and poke their heads out to catch the plankton drifting in the current. They're rather shy, as they quickly dart back into their hole at the slightest hint of danger."

Names in other languages[edit]
