The Museum

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

"Giant snakeheads get their name from the fact that their heads look like those of snakes. Their scales and patterns also look like snakes', really bringing the resemblance to a high degree. They have sharp teeth, so don't poke your finger anywhere near their mouths! Both males and females are well known for protecting their eggs and offspring. They will scare off any other fish that approach by frantically waving their tails."


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

"I caught a giant snakehead! But where's the rest of the snake?"
