The Horned Dynastid is found on trees.
The Horned Dynastid can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Horned dynastids are part of the scarab family. Their horns are actually part of their exoskeleton. Horned dynastids don't have a nose or ears, but they can sense smells with their antennae. They are also able to feel the minor vibrations of sounds traveling in the air using thin hair on their bodies. They are fairly loud when flying, plus they emit a rather sour odor, so they are hard not to notice."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a horned dynastid! Your era just ended, buddy!"
