The Ear Shell is found in underwater in the ocean. Its shadow is small and it moves in a straight line.
The Ear Shell can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"They resemble young abalone, as they are directly related to them, though they act more like snails. They live in various habitats, but being snaillike, they actually have feelers to get around the ocean."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I got an ear shell! And yet it couldn't hear me coming!"
