20 new fish and bugs just invaded your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island

...or 5, depending on which hemisphere your island is on.

April is here, which means there is a new batch of collectible critters that gamers can hunt for in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The roster of fish and bugs that were first available when the game was released in March has now been partially replaced by a new list of animals that includes the extravagant Atlas Moth. Here's everything new that can now be found crawling or swimming around your island.

Islands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons always have a specific list of creatures that spawn depending on whether they’re located in the Northern or Southern hemisphere. Players will eventually have access to all of the game’s creatures on a rotating basis, but that won’t be the case for a considerable amount of time.

The following lists aren’t complete lists of everything you’ll be able to catch on your island; they're just lists of what new animals just invaded your island.

Here are all of the critters that flew or swam into Animal Crossing: New Horizons at the start of April, how much they’re worth, along with how (and when) to find them.

Break out those fishing rods, there's a new school of fish in town.
