There's more to your island than meets the eye in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH)! Read on to learn more about the secrets and hidden content you may stumble upon as you explore your island getaway.
There's a hidden bug hiding in the backroom of Blather's Museum. You need to stand near the stairs, use the camera app, and move the interface to the top left of the screen to see it.
Players are reporting different bugs depending on the time of day. These include a Moth, Centipede, or a group of Ants.
If you manage to donate 60 items to the museum before the Town Hall is built, Tom Nook will announce the arrival of a certain shady character.
Tom Nook's announcenment regarding Redd is a bit more personal though!
While Isabelle refers to Redd in the announcement as a suspicious character, Tom Nook refers to him as a certain suspicious character.
It's implied in previous games, such as Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, that the two once worked together as business partners in the past but had a falling out.
Tom Nook is understandably concerned that his ex-business partner is now operating on the island!

|Robes and Sleeves|
|Enlarge Loose Sleeves||Enlarge Rolled-Up Sleeves|
Holding a ladder while wearing clothing with loose sleeves, such as kimonos and certain robes, causes you to roll up the sleeves!
Wisp is far from the spookiest thing in your island! Tune in to your TV at exactly 3:33 AM on a Saturday and you'll catch a glimpse of the mysterious alien broadcast.
Theories abound regarding this creepy easter egg, which first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Is the alien simply trying to communicate, or does this otherworldy visitor have more sinister intentions?
Being amphibians, Frog villagers don't mind the rain. In fact, they enjoy it and will often reference it in their dialogue.
They're the only villagers who don't wear raincoats, hats, or use an umbrella when they roam around your island when it rains!
Ever wonder what Pascal does to the scallops you give him? He eats them! After giving him a scallop, swim as close to the net to find him.
You'll see Pascal trying to crack the scallop open with the shell necklace he wears. After several attemps, he will gobble the scallop up and swim off!
This is based on the behavior of real-life sea otters. They use tools such as rocks and shells to crack open shellfish.
When you play the game with the ACNH Joy-Con controllers, you will get the ACNH Nintendo Switch from Nintendo, as thanks for using the specially colored controllers.
To get the DIY, Leif has to visit your island three times, and you need to buy at least one item from him during these days.
On the third day and after buying from him, Leif will give you the Hedge DIY as thanks for being his best customer!
You'll sometimes get notifications from your NookPhone Apps if you find something new or clear a Nook Miles activity, but you can actually tell by the icon whether you cleared one of the daily Nook Miles+ tasks or the achievement-like Activities!
Nook Miles+ tasks will display a plus while the normal Activities won't.
The Slingshot you can buy for 900 Bells has the same durability as the Slingshots you can buy for 2,500 Bells. Talk about a rip off!
Investigating a lost item often results in a more detailed description of the item. Read this carefully as it's actually a clue to whom the item belongs!
In this example, the bag is described as being old fashioned with a focus on utility over style. This fits the description of a cranky villager, like Del!

Different types of fish come in different aquarium shapes and sizes when displayed. The same goes for certain sea creatures, such as crabs and seaweed.
|Birds on the Bulletin Board|
|Enlarge Yellow Birds||Enlarge White Owls|
Walking by your town hall, you'll sometimes notice a Yellow Bird perched on the Bulletin Board. At night, the feathery visitor is a White Owl instead.
These birds cannot be caught, as they fly away when you get too close, and they will only appear if you have a new and unread message on your bulletin board.
There are four villagers that share the same catchphrase!
Drake and Bill share the same catchphrase, "Quacko".
|Enlarge Drake||Enlarge Bill|
Similarly, Bertha and Zucker share the catchphrase, "Bloop".
|Enlarge Bertha||Enlarge Zucker|
Marine Song 2001 is the only song that K.K. Slider doesn't sing, though he sings a great cover for it on request!
It's sung by that famous sailor and part-time bus driver, Kapp'n!
Incidentally, it's the only song you can get in the game that has actual vocals when played on the radio. It's also one of the longest songs!
Villagers and NPCs react differently to your smirk reaction. They'll either smirk along with you or react in shock!
|Enlarge Surprise||Enlarge Shock|
Villagers also react in surprise or shock when you trip in front of them. Watch your step!
Orville reacts differently to the Apologetic Reaction. Unlike other villagers and NPCs, he'll get teary-eyed when he bows apologetically! Oh, drumsticks...
Thinking of gifting villagers with bells? Unfortunately, they won't accept them regardless of the amount and even if you gift wrap it.
Letting them move and live on your island paradise was the greatest gift you gave them!
