The Museum

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

"Golden stags are named after their unique gold color and are highly prized by collectors. They shine like gold when their bodies are dry, but when it's humid, they actually look black. Golden stags have short mandibles that aren't good for fighting, but males sometimes fight for territory. The males are surprisingly friendly to the females, which gives these beetles a likeable quality."


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

"Whoa! I caught a golden stag! Better not spend it all in one place!"
