He is asleep during the day, but will wake up when prompted.
Ironically, Blathers is insectophobia, meaning he is afraid of insects.
Blathers is a dark brown owl, with a checkered belly. He has a yellow beak, and large protruding eyebrows. He also has noticeable pink cheeks. He tends to go off on tangents about things he gets excited over.
Blathers can be found in the main room of the museum. He will accept donations to the exhibits.
