The Atlas Beetle is one of the various rare beetles available to capture in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.


[edit] How to Catch

Rumour has it that these beetles are more likely to be caught in the summer rain. They can be found on palm trees.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Atlas Beetle:

"I caught an atlas beetle! It's black and looks tough! It's the strongest beetle!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught an atlas beetle! At last, beetle!"

These beetles are the strongest in the world.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

The world's strongest beetles have three horns--the keys to their strength!

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I find most things about beetles like this repellant, but the MOST repellant are the thin wings that they keep hidden inside. You know of what I speak? After landing, seeing that little piece of wing sticking out of their backs! Blech! Just another example of how insects scoff at proper manners and tidiness!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Crowned with three horns, the atlas beetle is known as the strongest of the dynastid beetles(*). Blech, I wonder if it had three horns when it was in its larval form... I simply loathe larvae. All squishy and squirmy... Nightmarish, really."

[edit] Real Life

The Peacock Butterfly is a species of butterfly that is native to Japan. When in the caterpillar stage of their life, these bugs work on a consistent diet of cork tree and prickly-ash plants. When fully grown, the female ends up with more elaborate wing designs than the male.
