The Museum

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

"Goliath beetles, named after the legendary giant, are among the largest insects in the world. The larvae can weigh four ounces or more. Once mature, they are only half that weight, however. They spend their days flying from tree to tree to feed on tree sap or fruits."'


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

"I caught a goliath beetle! Hah! He doesn't look so big."
