The Museum

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

"Raja Brooke butterflies have red heads and a red strip around their necks, giving the look of a collar. They are known to drink hot-spring water and often hang around water flowing up from the ground. While males are vibrantly green, females are much more commonly seen with brown wings."


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

"I caught a Raja Brooke butterfly! It's worth about as much as royalty!"
