"I caught a cricket! That's a sticky wicket, isn't it?" —New Leaf

The cricket (コオロギ, Koorogi?) is a common bug in the Animal Crossing series. It can be found in autumn, between the months of September and November. They can be sold for 130 bells. They live in bushes in Animal Forest and Animal Crossing, so the player has to scare it out so it can be caught. In Wild World, City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, it can be found on exposed ground.

Donating to the museum

In Animal Crossing

"I actually find their voices quite soothing. On an autumn evening, when their cries fill the air... Delightful! Their appearance however, is not in the least bit engaging, and actually borders on repugnant. As for myself, I find them no better than cockroaches. Blech! Vile. Vile indeed. Truly, dirtily vile, eh wot?"

In Wild World

"Hoo! Well. That IS a lovely sound, now isn't it? Indeed. I wonder if I'm the only one to mistake these things for roaches... I suppose the only sound I've ever heard a roach make is "squish.""

In City Folk

"Ah, hoo...indeed. Crickets do have a lovely chirp, I must grudgingly admit. Still, that black body, those long feelers... How do people love these when they resemble...THOSE? I bet one couldn't even tell the difference between a cricket and a cockroach in the dark of night..."

The cricket is located on the second tier of the insect section, in the area just above the ramp from the first level.

In New Leaf

"The chirping sound you often hear from male crickets is emitted by the stridulation of their wings. Crickets' ears are located just below the middle joint of each front leg. While this seems odd to us, it helps them easily pinpoint where various sounds are coming from."

The cricket is located in the western back room, in the center near the rafflesia.

A cricket in real life.

Field Crickets, as any cricket in the genus Gryllus is usually called, are surprisingly large crickets that inhabit meadows and fields as their name suggests. While their song is loud and far-carrying, they are actually very difficult to find in dense undergrowth. Females are identified by the presence of the ovipositor, which to the casual observer would appear as "three spikes on the abdomen" (the remaining two being cerci) as opposed to the two (cerci only) on the male. Only males have the ability to produce the typical and familiar chirping.
