The Museum

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

"As expected, all puffer fish are covered in spines. While related to the blowfish, they are not poisonous. Exaggerated claims about the fish say they have 1,000 spines; the true number is between 300 and 400. When threatened, they suck in water and air to puff themselves up in order to intimidate enemies."


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

"I caught a puffer fish! Ouch!"
