- "I caught a migratory locust! It migrated to a good spot!" —New Leaf
In the GCN games it jumps extremely far when flushed, and is a great challenge to catch, hence the high sell price. It is the hardest to catch in Animal Forest, as in this version bugs can traverse multiple acres. In Animal Forest+ and beyond it is restricted to the acre in which it appears. In Wild World and City Folk, where acres are no longer visually present, it was less expensive and its jump distance had been reduced.
Donating to the museum
In Animal Crossing
"I have a rather difficult time dealing with the soft underbellies of grasshoppers. They're...vulgar. And their legs! Why do they come off so easily when one merely handles the beasts? Blech! Simply horrid!"
In Wild World
"I wonder if the migratory locust thinks about where it's going to go next? Frankly, I suspect it plans not at all and just flies about willy-nilly... Hardly a recommended way of traveling, eh wot? Hoo... But I digress..."
In City Folk
Blathers will say this upon donation:
"Ah, hoo, migratory locusts. As their name suggests, they fly far...quite far, in point of fact. These insects will fly as a group into fields, devour all the crops, and completely devastate the land. Just one of these beasts is sufficiently horrifying, so imagine how abominable a swarm would be... Blech!"
The Migratory Locust can be found near the Dung Beetle and Long Locust.
In New LeafIn New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.
"Migratory locusts are large insects that can jump up to 32 feet, as they open their wings when they jump. These locusts love to eat and can consume their own weight in food every single day. As a group, their hunger is enough that a million locusts can consume one ton of food per day. Oddly, when migratory locusts grow up surrounded only by other locusts, their shells will be entirely black."
