Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Goliath Beetle
These large insects appear on trees!
The Goliath Beetle is one of many insects and fish you can catch (and donate to the museum) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Here’s everything you need to know about catching them!
Players with islands in the Northern Hemisphere can find the Goliath Beetle from June to September. As reported by Polygon, the Goliath Beetle will appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from December to March. The bug can be found from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.
The Goliath Beetle is a somewhat unique insect. As Polygon reported, the beetle will only appear on palm trees.
Goliath Beetles are fairly large, and they also have unique red, white, and black coloring that makes them stand out against the brown palm trees. Check out our short gameplay clip below to see exactly what a Goliath Beetle looks like in New Horizons, so you know what to look for in your own game.
Goliath Beetles sell for 8,000 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, so it’s worth keeping an eye out for these bugs even after you donate one to the museum.
