The Museum

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

"Red dragonflies are seen in the fall, as they're rather sensitive to the heat of summer. They stay in the mountains during the summer and come down to the plains in cooler weather. The males' bodies turn red when they're mature, but their heads and thoraxes are brownish. The females have a more yellowish color and aren't as red as the males, making them easy to tell apart."


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

"I caught a red dragonfly! Wonder if it breathes fire..."
