"I got a tiger prawn! I can sell it at a prawn shop!" —New Leaf

The tiger prawn is a benthic animal found at the bottom of the sea. It is indicated by a circular shadow. Diving is the only way to capture it. Because of their low rarity and decent price, it is possible to obtain large amounts of Bells by selling these alone.

In New Leaf

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

"These shrimp inhabit shallow areas of the sea and are nocturnal, hiding under sand during the day. By night, they go out and hunt shellfish before returning to the safety of their sand. Unlike other shrimp, they don't carry their eggs around with them in their abdomen. They are famous for being a tasty variety of shrimp and are perfect for tempura and sushi."
