Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Horned Elephant
This insect appears on palm trees!
August is almost over, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons players with islands in the Northern Hemisphere only have a few days left to catch a variety of bugs before they disappear for the year. One of these insects is the horned elephant.
Horned elephants can appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from July to August. According to All Gamers, they’ll show on up islands in the Southern Hemisphere from January to February. Horned elephants can appear on the sides of palm trees at any time between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m.
Horned elephants are large, brown bugs that appear to have a yellow tint at night. Check out our short gameplay clip below to see what one of these insects looks like at night when it’s hanging on the side of a palm tree.
A horned elephant can be sold for 8,000 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more Bells if you sell it to Flick when he visits your island. Just remember that you’ll also need to donate one of these insects to Blathers if you want to finish your museum’s collection.
The horned elephant isn’t very common, and 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.
