The Museum

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

"Migratory locusts are large insects that can jump up to 32 feet, as they open their wings when they jump. These locusts love to eat and can consume their own weight in food every single day. As a group, their hunger is enough that a million locusts can consume one ton of food per day. Oddly, when migratory locusts grow up surrounded only by other locusts, their shells will be entirely black."


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

"I caught a migratory locust! It migrated to a good spot!"
