Frog Animal Crossing: New Horizons is about to make or break your island ambiance.

Frogs have made an appearance in Nintendo's newest Animal Crossing game—and, no, we don't mean as villagers. As it turns out, we will never be free of noisy interruptions from our island's local fauna. Just as the Mole Cricket makes its way out of season, the frog has hopped onto the scene. Frogs join the collection of wild animals with villager counterparts alongside birds, owls, and turtles.

Here's a little bit about frogs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Frog Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Frogs only appear from May to August and you can only catch them in ponds. They tend to spawn all day. However, you'll be able to tell them apart from other small-shadow fish by their distinct croaking noise.

Similar to the Mole Cricket, players will need to depend on their sense of hearing to find frogs. The croaking will only cease once the frog has been caught, chased away, or de-spawned.

Frogs are a common spawn, so it likely won't be long before you can add one to your museum. An individual frog sells for 120 bells to Nook's Cranny or 180 to CJ.

The popularity of the frog can be compared to the strange curiosity that surrounds the yellow bird—and, by extension, the player. Nintendo has confirmed that the player character in Animal Crossing is not the same species as human beings. Instead, they are the same species as Mario and crew. Does this mean that villagers in Animal Crossing are a distinct species from their wild counterparts, as well?
