Friendship ended with all the opposite animals on my Animal Crossing: New Horizons island. (Sorry, Raymond.) The snapping turtle is my new greatest good friend — or, no less than, will probably be when I catch one.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons permits you to toss your bugs and fish on the bottom — in crates and cages, which may be stacked and saved in your island. There is one exception, to this point: the snapping turtle. No, it’s not which you could’t put it on the bottom, however that it doesn’t have a crate or a cage. It’s only a turtle, on the ground, that opens it mouth and breathes closely. It’s barely creepy and I completely want a snapping turtle pal.

I’m already transitioning my turnip storage toilet into my future snapping turtle’s bed room. Lots of different Animal Crossing: New Horizons gamers are doing this, too. (Maybe not going so far as a snapping turtle bed room — however some are!)

Apparently, the snapping turtle — I will title mine Larry — will simply chill wherever you’ve positioned it. When you get shut (and push A) it’ll open its mouth and make the respiratory sound. If you choose it up and present it off, it’ll wiggle a bit. It’s very cute and awkward. I love him.

Here’s one other enjoyable reality concerning the snapping turtle: It’s acquired a historical past with Blathers, too. If you select to donate your snapping turtle to the museum (and the way dare you) Blathers will let you know a narrative a few time he encountered one — and it chased him throughout a parking zone and he needed to climb on prime of a automotive to get away. (Never thoughts that Blathers is an owl and presumably can fly.)

Anyway, I’ve acquired to get again to renovating my home for my new greatest good friend’s arrival. If you’ve acquired a spare canine bowl or litter field, let me know. (And no less than now I know the litter field wasn’t for Rosie!)
