The Ray (エイ, Ei?) is a relatively uncommon fish found in the ocean. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf it has the same shadow size as a Sea Bass, where in Animal Crossing: City Folk the shadow is a size larger.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf it can be found on the island during the entire year.

Donating to the Museum

Like all fish in the Animal Crossing series series, the ray can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, who will give a small talk about it. It can be found in the back oceanic tank, with other ocean/sea fish.

In City Folk

Blathers has this to say about the ray when donated:

"Many theorize that rays are distant relatives to the sharks... But unlike their fearsome theoretical cousins, rays, with their little grins, are simply adorable, wot wot!"

When placed in the museum it appears in the very back tank with most other saltwater fish.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Beating their large fins up and down to move through the water gives the rays the impression of flying. If viewed from below, rays appear to have their mouths curled up into a sort of smile. Some varieties have poisonous spikes at the base of their long tail fins that can be fatal to humans. This, combined with the ability to hide in sand at the bottom of the sea, can make them very dangerous."

Encyclopedia Information

Whenever the player catches a fish or bug, they can find information about it in the fish encycolopedia.
