The Museum

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

"Grasshoppers are known for their unique songs, but unlike crickets, it doesn't come from their wings. Rather, the chirping sound comes from their rubbing their legs together. They look like a thicker version of locusts, but some species of grasshoppers actually eat locusts."


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

"I caught a grasshopper! Seems it's hopped its last!"
