The Museum

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

"When male long locusts jump, you can hear the trademark stridulation noise they make. Long locusts can be green as well as brown. The brown ones usually hide near dried grass or brown areas. While males are long, females are consistently much longer, making it simple to tell them apart."


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

"I caught a long locust! It got the short end of the stick!"
