The transitioning from one month to another in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings different animals into the exciting game and allows players to catch them. One of the bugs that the month of May has brought to players is the scorpion, as players now have the opportunity to encounter and find a scorpion when they are playing. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know to encounter and catch this particular critter in Animal Crossing: New Horizons covered for you.

How to Catch Scorpion in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Players who are looking to catch a scorpion will need to keep their eyes peeled to the ground, as the ground is where this creature will be found when you are playing. However, only players in the Northern Hemisphere can encounter and catch the scorpion in the month of May until October. Players in the Southern Hemisphere will have to wait till November to have the ability to find this kind of critter on the ground and will be able to do so until April. 

This creature will spawn on your island between the hours of 7 PM and 4 AM, which means players who are wanting to encounter and catch a scorpion will need to set aside some dedicated time during this period if they want to have a chance of getting this critter.
