The Museum

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

"As the name might indicate, giant cicadas are one of the largest species of cicada in the world. They used to live mostly in warmer western Japan, but they've now also moved to urban eastern Japan. Though they're now common in these areas, they aren't well known in other parts of the world."'


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

"I caught a giant cicada! Luckily I didn't need a bean stalk!"
