The Pine Cricket is a species of cricket which can only be found in the very first Animal Crossing, which made it's debut on the Gamecube


[edit] How to Catch

Unlike certain bugs which make their home in the vast grass inhabiting your Town, this particular cricket can easily evade your Net-based pursuit giving it's potential to jump great distances at a constant rate, which means your timing is going to have to be twice as sharp.

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I actually find their voices quite soothing. On an autumn evening, when their cries fill the air... Delightful! Their appearance however, is not in the least bit engaging, and actually borders on repugnant. As for myself, I find them no better than Cockroaches. Blech! Vile. Vile indeed. Truly, dirtily vile, eh wot?"

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the Pine Cricket has the interesting ability to blend into it's environment thanks to it's nearly transparent body and subtle colour scheme which accomodates it. It's comparably small size to that of regular crickets also lends to it's knack for evading predators with relative ease.
