The Museum

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

"Pill bugs live in moist places, which is why you will commonly find them under rocks and in stumps. When they're touched, they roll into a ball. Oddly enough, they're part of the crustacean family. As such, and since they don't like dry places, they can travel for a short time underwater if need be."


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

"I caught a pill bug! I don't know... It seems nice to me!"
