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.
A hidden bug hides in the backroom of Blather's Museum. Stand near the stairs, use the camera app, and move the interface to the top left of the screen to see it. Depending on the time of day, you might see a Moth, Centipede, or a group of Ants.
Donate 60 items to the museum before the Town Hall is built, and there'll be a personal announcement from Tom Nook regarding the arrival of a certain shady character!

|Robes and 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.
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. They're the only villagers who don't wear raincoats, hats, or use an umbrella when they roam around your island while raining!
If you swim close to the net after meeting Pascal, you'll see him trying to crack the scallop open with the shell necklace he wears. 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'll get the ACNH Nintendo Switch 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 can actually tell by the icon on your phone 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|
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.

Drake and Bill share the same catchphrase, "Quacko".
Similarly, Bertha and Zucker share the catchphrase, "Bloop".
Did you know that 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!
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, your villagers would always refuse your gift.
