The Museum

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

"The cool-looking saddled bichir are ancient fish with spiky fins on their backs. Though they've been around for more than 400 million years, they remain relatively unchanged. They have big appetites and will wait to ambush any fish they think will fit in their mouths. They can grow up to 30 inches long, making them rather large fish indeed. They swim slowly in a way that gives them the appearance of walking like dinosaurs."


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

"Wow! A saddled bichir! Now I'm saddled with guilt!"
