The Museum

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

"Oak silk moths are seen in the summer and are one of the largest moth species in the world. They make silk from their mouths as they transition into the pupa stage. As adults, they don't eat anything and only live off the nutrients they stored while they were caterpillars."


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

"I caught an oak silk moth! Who's smooth now?"
