The Museum

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

"The house centipede has many remarkably long legs that give it a very intimidating appearance. However, despite this intense look, they are for the most part harmless to humans. When an enemy is holding down one of its legs, the house centipede will drop that leg to make an escape. The dropped leg will continue to flail for a while, though, providing a distraction."
