The Museum

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

"Mantis shrimp have long, sickle-shaped legs and thick carapaces covering both their bodies and tails. They strike captured prey with claws powerful enough to crack the shells of even the toughest crabs. They are a popular dish with fans of seafood, though females with eggs are worth more than males."


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

"I got a mantis shrimp! Pray on someone else, ya shrimp!"
