July has now begun so the fish and bugs you can catch in Animal Crossing New Horizons are now a little different. You’ll now find a bunch of bugs that you’d find during the summer months in the real world. So that you can get a step closer to filling Blathers’ museum, here’s everything you need to know about the Horned Dynastid in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including where to find it and how much it sells for.
Horned Dynastid Spawn Times & Location in Animal Crossing New Horizons
The Horned Dynastid is pretty common but might be quite tough to spot because of where it hides. There are no other catch conditions other than the time of year and day you can find it. You will only be able to find the Horned Dynastid during the following months for each hemisphere.
- Northern Hemisphere: July – August
- Southern Hemisphere: January – February
During these months, the Horned Dynastid can only be caught between 5 pm and 8 am, so you’ll have to do some evening or nighttime bug hunting in Animal Crossing New Horizons to get it.
How to Catch
Unlike a lot of bugs that you’ll just find wandering around the island, the Horned Dynastid will only spawn on standard trees. That makes it easier to find than those that will only spawn on palm trees, which is helpful.
Get your net out and hold A to sneak towards the bug, letting go when next to it to grab it. If you’ve done it at the right time, your little character will show it off before putting it away.
Horned Dynastid Sell Price
Once you’ve caught one and if you don’t want to donate it to Blathers so that he can show off in his museum, you can sell it to Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny for 1350 bells. If Flick visits your island though, you can sell it to him for 50% more, netting you 2025 bells.
That’s everything you need to know about the Horned Dynastid in Animal Crossing New Horizons. For more tips and tricks on the ever-evolving game, be sure to check out our wiki guide or search for Twinfinite.
