The Museum

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

"Arowanas are ancient fish that have remained basically unchanged for 100 million years. They are known for their large scales and the hair that sticks out from their lower lips. They have a remarkable jumping ability and can leap over a yard above the surface of the water. Males protect their babies by keeping them in their mouths and releasing them once they reach a certain size."


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

"I caught an arowana! But where's its bow?"
