Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Cyclommatus Stag
Look for its horns!
August is quickly flying by, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons players with islands in the Northern Hemisphere only have a short time left to catch a number of different bugs before they disappear for the year. One of these is the cyclommatus stag.
Here’s everything you need to know about finding and catching one of these large insects!
The cyclommatus stag can appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from July to August. According to AllGamers, it can appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from January to February. The cyclommatus stag can appear on the sides of palm trees at any time between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m.
While the cyclommatus stag is a rare insect, it’s easy to spot one once it does show up, since it has two massive horns sticking out from the top of its head. Check out our short gameplay clip below to see what a cyclommatus stag looks like when it’s hanging on the side of a palm tree.
Cyclommatus stags can be sold for 8,000 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell them to Flick when he visits your island. Keep in mind you’ll also need to donate one of these insects to the museum if you want to finish your museum’s insect collection.
Since the cyclommatus stag isn’t very common, it may take you some time to track one down. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
