The Museum

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

"The back of the wings of a peacock butterfly is black, while the front is blue or green. The males have black, velvet hair on their forewings and are easy to spot because of their beauty. Sometimes you may see a group of male peacock butterflies drinking water together."


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

"I caught a peacock butterfly! Is it a bird or a bug?"
