June Is Shark Season on 'Animal Crossing' — Here Are All the New Fish and Bugs Coming

By

Updated

Better craft an extra fishing pole and net, Animal Crossers, because the month of June is especially exciting for anyone looking to add some new critters to their museum. The month that marks the start of summer also brings some highly anticipated new fish and bugs to your island — many of which fetch some very fine prices at Nook's Cranny. 

And, as always, the turning of the calendar also means some species will go into hibernation for a while. Here are all the new Animal Crossing fish and bugs as of June, along with the species that are gone as of June 1 and the critters that will go away at the end of the month.
