The Museum

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

"Rainbow stags are called the most beautiful of stag beetles because of their metallic-rainbow color. Not only are their wings a pretty rainbow color, but their bellies are as well. They are quite laid back, but they can be seen every now and then fighting to protect their territories."


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

"I caught a rainbow stag! Aren't you a colorful bug!"
