[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Related to the Carp. "Barbel" refers to whiskers.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"These are often compared to carp. Up close, the difference is clear."

[edit] Museum

This is what Blathers will say when you donate this fish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"This might look like a carp, but I heard it doesn't taste like one, eh wot? Indeed, I should think this fish is more suited to catching than to eating."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"While Barbel Steeds have many of the same features as carp, they're a bit less exciting, to my mind. For example, both have whiskers, wot? Yet the Barbel Steed's are just a hair shorter... It's rather like a fan doing an imiation of his or her favorite actor, or something to that effect."

[edit] Trivia

  • The Barbel Steed is the exact same length as a Carp.

[edit] Real Life

The Barbel Steed lives in the bottom of rocky rivers. It is commonly found in the Amur Basin, where natives call it the Amur Barbel.

[edit] Appearance

These fish have a grey appearance, looking more like a Carp than anything else.
