The Ant is found on candy and rotten turnips.
The Ant can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Ants are small but very powerful and are able to carry items far heavier than they are. In the nest, there is a queen and also worker ants, making them somewhat similar to bees. In some habitats, ants actually make up between 15-20% of the area's total terrestrial-animal biomass."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
I caught an ant! I'm exuber-ant! (Well...not really...)
