Friendship ended with all the opposite animals on my Animal Crossing: New Horizons island. (Sorry, Raymond.) The snapping turtle is my new greatest pal — or, at the very least, it will likely be once I catch one.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons helps you to toss your bugs and fish on the bottom — in crates and cages, which will be stacked and saved in your island. There is one exception, thus far: the snapping turtle. No, it’s not which you can’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 rest room 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 — but some are!)
Apparently, the snapping turtle — I’ll 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 respiration sound. If you choose it up and present it off, it’ll wiggle a bit. It’s very cute and awkward. I like him.
Here’s one other enjoyable truth in regards to the snapping turtle: It’s received 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 couple of time he encountered one — and it chased him throughout a car parking zone and he needed to climb on high of a automotive to get away. (Never thoughts that Blathers is an owl and presumably can fly.)
Anyway, I’ve received to get again to renovating my home for my new greatest pal’s arrival. If you’ve received a spare canine bowl or litter field, let me know. (And at the very least now I do know the litter box wasn’t for Rosie!)
