The Museum

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

"Their long faces and large mouths make them look like alligators. Some can grow up to three yards. They are ancient fish that haven't changed since they first appeared millions of years ago. They breathe not only through gills, but also by sticking their mouths above the surface of the water. Gar eggs are poisonous, so people all over the world are advised not to eat them -- no exceptions."


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

"I caught a gar! It ain't gettin' too far!"
