The Dab is one of the odder-looking fish that can be caught in this game. It first appears in the game Animal Forest e+ and has made further appearances in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.


[edit] How to Catch

The Dab can be caught only within the ocean located on your Town's beachside shore. It sells for next to nothing at Nooks considering how seldom this fish is regularly come by, though it shouldn't be called necessarily "rare".

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Dab:

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"力レイを つり・・・ あれ? ほんとに?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

I caught a dab! Didja see it? You're a dab, right?

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a dab! And I'm feeling fab!

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Dab in the fish menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

About half the size of olive flounders, they like to bury themselves in the sand.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These have flat, asymmetrical bodies. The eyes are on the right side.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

By the by... Just so you know, eyes on a dab are positioned on the right, but on the left on a flounder. When young, these fish are shaped like ordinary fish, but... As they mature, they start becoming flatter in preparation for adulthood! What professionalism! You can tell this is a very responsible fish, wot?

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Dab is related to the flatfish family and is one of the smallest breeds of it's kind. It commonly buries itself in the sand of the ocean floor in order to conceal itself against natural predators.
