The Giant Petaltail is a rare bug first introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk. It can be caught throughout August to October.


[edit] How to Catch

The Giant Petaltail is an extremely rare bug that can be found hovering in the air. This type of dragonfly is very hard to catch because it flies very swiftly. To catch it you should box it out by a cliff and avoid having it fly over rivers. If you lose it from your sight you might not find it again because it is so fast.

"Hootie hoo! It's like looking at a living ancestor of today's dragonflies! A vile ancestor... It's so big that when I tell people I spotted one, no one wants to believe me. Folks claim I'm being daft. It's understandable, wot? When I look at this thing, I think I might very well BE hallucinating..."

[edit] Trivia

  • The Giant Petaltail sells for the most amount of bells of any other Dragonfly in the game.

[edit] Real Life
