The Walking Leaf is found on the ground appearing as a normal leaf, but starts to move when the player approaches.

The Museum

The Walking Leaf can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Walking leaves look just like real leaves. They're related to walking sticks, which resemble twigs. The females are better at mimicking leaves than the males, though they can't fly. Their mimicking is so thorough that some of them even have fake bite marks on their bodies."


Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:

"I caught a walking leaf! I'm glad it can't run!"
