The Museum

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

"These shrimp relatives are usually found in ponds and rivers, typically making them easy to catch. The reason for this strange habitat is that crawfish are plentiful and will eat just about anything. Eating plant material makes their bodies red, but only eating fish and meat will turn their bodies blue. A red color indicates they are eating a healthy and balanced diet, so red is the ideal for the species."


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

"I caught a crawfish! Watch those pinchers!"'
