The Tiger Beetle (ハンミョウ, Hanmyō) is a bug that can be caught in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Tiger Beetles are found in the main town from March to October and in Tortimer Island all year. They can also spawn while it is raining.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

As with all insects in the Animal Crossing series, the Tiger Beetle can be donated to the Museum followed by a small talk by Blathers, the curator. A sign in the bug exhibit displays information about the Tiger Beetle.

In New Leaf[edit]

"Tiger beetles are known for their aggressive predatory habits and fast running speed. Their bodies are rather colorful and reflect the sunshine, giving them a shimmery appearance. Tiger-beetle larvae live in cylindrical burrows and capture insects that wander past with their mandibles."

It can be found in the top section of the upper right room in the bug habitat of the museum.
