The Museum

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

"Banded dragonflies have black-and-yellow-striped bodies and bright-green eyes. They are large and can fly quite fast. They have strong jaws, so it might be painful if you're bitten. Their larval stage lasts two to four years, where they live near water, feeding on tadpoles and small fish."


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

"I did it! I caught a banded dragonfly! Now to find the rest of its band!"
