The Tiger Prawn (クルマエビ, Kurumaebi) is a type of deep sea creature found in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

After the player donates a Tiger Prawn to the Museum, the Tiger Prawn can be found in the large pool in the first room of the Ocean exhibit, along with many other species of deep sea creatures. It is found in the corner near the big rock close to the entrance of the large saltwater exhibit. The exhibit has this to say about the Tiger Prawn:

"These shrimp inhabit shallow areas of the sea and are nocturnal, hiding under sand during the day. By night, they go out and hunt shellfish before returning to the safety of their sand. Unlike other shrimp they don't carry their eggs around with them in their abdomen. They are famous for being a tasty variety of shrimp and are perfect for tempura and sushi."
