Animal Crossing New Horizons is entering the new month of June with a bunch of unique fish and bugs to capture in both the Northern and Southern hemisphere. However, when it comes to the former, players can now catch a Great White Shark. Here you’ll discover the time Great White Sharks spawn and how to easily catch one.

There’s been plenty of unique events and occasions since Animal Crossing New Horizons launched back in March, and there promises to be even more with Nintendo committing two-to-three years of continuous updates. One of these updates fan can anticipate is the wedding season.

However, while love and marriages are fantastic things to celebrate in-game while reality continues to go further down the poop-hole, what’s even more fantastic is catching a Great White Shark and selling it for lots of bells. Not only that but having it adorn your museum too.

When do Great White Sharks spawn in ACNH?

A Great White Shark will only spawn between the hours of 16:00 and 09:00 in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

In addition, a Great White Shark will only spawn in the Northern hemisphere of Animal Crossing New Horizons for the following months:

  • June
  • July
  • August
  • September

These are the months Northern hemisphere players can capture Nintendo’s Jaws.

How to catch Great White Shark in Animal Crossing New Horizons

You catch a Great White Shark in Animal Crossing New Horizons by following the below steps:

  • Approach the sea of your Animal Crossing New Horizons beach between the hours of 16:00 and 09:00
  • Use fish bait to attract different fish and shadow sizes
  • Find a fish with a large shadow size and fin
  • Throw your finishing line and only press A when a bite is taken as opposed to nibbles
  • Reel in the sucker and see what you got

It’s possible that you could be extremely lucky and get a Great White Shark on your first go, but you may need to be patient as its shadow is largely the same as other sharks.

Once you have captured Nintendo’s Jaws, ensure that you donate it to Blathers for your Museum as it’s very cool to have.

However, any others you capture can be sold to the Nooks for 15,000 bells.
