The Museum

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

"Horned atlases, though perhaps not the largest, are still known as the strongest of dynastid beetles. Their 3 horns make them look like a mash-up of a dynastid beetle and a stag beetle! In the pupal stage, they already have 3 horns and tend to be pretty strong."


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

"I caught a horned atlas! It's like a weight has been lifted!"
