This critter will only appear in the river.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has two different turtles to catch and donate to the museum. While turtles are technically reptiles, they’re part of the “fish” collection in New Horizons.

Here’s everything you need to know about finding and catching a soft-shelled turtle!

The soft-shelled turtle will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from August to September. According to AllGamers, it can be found in the Southern Hemisphere from February to March. Soft-shelled turtles can appear in the river from 4 p.m. to 9 a.m.

The soft-shelled turtle has a large shadow size. Check out our gameplay clip below to see the exact shadow size you’re looking for.

Soft-shelled turtles can be sold for 3,750 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell them to C.J. when he visits your island.

Since multiple fish share the same shadow size, it can sometimes take a while to track down a specific creature. That being the case, check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
