The Museum

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

"Saw sharks got their name from their long head lined with spikelike teeth much like a chain-saw blade. Sensors located below their mouths detect prey as they press their flat bodies against the seabed to search. They will sometimes swing their 'saws' wildly amid a school of fish, catching any that are struck."


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

"I caught a saw shark! And yet it didn't see me coming!"
