The Museum

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

"These former tadpoles prefer to live near pond and other damp and swampy places. They dwell on land, so they have lungs and skin as opposed to a set of gills. They like to stick close to water because they require a nice, moist lifestyle. Frogs are moist because they emit a liquid to protect their skin from dryness. If too much moisture evaporates from their thin skins, they could have trouble breathing. It's better not to handle frogs, as some species are poisonous, even to the touch!"


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

"I caught a frog! Hop to it, froggie!"
