With the new Summer Update, forty new sea creatures are available in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Grab your wet suit and start swimming around your island to catch them.

How to find a Giant Isopod in Animal Crossing New Horizons

  • Critter: Giant Isopod
  • Seasonality: July – October (Northern Hemisphere)
  • Active Hours: 9 am – 4 pm, 9 pm – 4 am
  • Shadow: Medium
  • Price: 9600 Bells

The Giant Isopod is a fast sea creature that swims at about the same speed as your character. Catching up to this critter is a pain, but you have to be persistent to catch it. First, make sure you have a wet suit so you can go in the water. 

Next, take note of the Giant Isopod’s seasonality and active hours. You can catch it from July through October, so you have a good four months to practice getting one from the time of writing this. You can find swimming around in the afternoon and late evening, between 9 am to 4 pm, and 4 pm to 9 am.

Because the Giant Isopod is so fast, you will want to swim near it and dive when you are in range before it gets away. You will never really catch up to it while chasing it because you need to come up for air every so often.

Again, the Giant Isopod is a frustrating deep-sea creature to catch. Luckily, it sells for 9600 Bells. However, you might never want to hunt one again after your first catch. That’s all you need to know to find a Giant Isopod in Animal Crossing New Horizons. We have a complete deep-sea creature list you can check out to help you fill out your Critterpedia.
