The Museum

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

"Despite the name, not all ladybugs are 'ladies.' There are also male ladybugs. Though you'll see different ladybugs with different numbers of spots, they don't get more as they age. Ladybugs eat insects harmful to crops. A few species eat the leaves of crops, but most are beneficial. They're tough against the cold, but during winter they stay in groups under dry leaves for warmth."


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

"I caught a ladybug! Or is this one a man?"
