The Museum

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

"Giant isopods are related to pill bugs, and they can grow up to 20 inches long. They are scary looking but still come across as humorous for some odd reason. Despite their roly-poly builds, they are surprisingly fast swimmers, making them rather agile. They have big appetites, gaining the title "sea cleaners" mostly because they eat dead fish on the seafloor."


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

""Blech! I caught a giant isopod! That's a horror if ever one existed!"
