The Museum

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

The chirping sound of bell crickets is considered beautiful and tends to represent the coming of fall. This easily recognizable chirping is created when males of the species rub their forewings together. The resulting sound is much higher in pitch than the human voice, so it can't be heard over a phone.


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

"I caught a bell cricket! Odd, it doesn't look like money..."
