The Giant Cicada is a bug currently found only in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It is uncommon, but in July it is more common than the Walker Cicada.

A different catch phrase is shown when it is caught in the rain in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This trait is shared with the Robust Cicada, Walker Cicada and the Evening Cicada.

Donating to the Museum

In New Leaf

Upon donation to the Museum, the information board in the bug exhibit says:

"As the name might indicate, giant cicadas are one of the largest species of cicada in the world. They used to live mostly in warmer western Japan, but they've now also moved to urban eastern Japan. Though they're now common in these areas, they aren't well known in other parts of the world."

Further Information

Bear cicada
TalisethAdded by Taliseth
The bug known as the "Giant Cicada" in Animal Crossing: New Leaf is actually the Bear Cicada (熊蝉 Kumazemi?), and should not be confused with the Giant Cicada (Quesada gigas) found in the Americas, or the exinct "giant cicadas" of the family Palaeontinidae.

The Bear Cicada is Japan's largest cicada. The adults can emerge anywhere from July to the end of September. The populations have seen erratic increases and decreases all over Japan in recent years.
