The Scarab Beetle is found on trees.
The Scarab Beetle can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Scarab beetles have elegant, metallic-looking bodies and are shinier even than fruit beetles. They're so shiny that they're said to gleam like gold. They're very rare and can be sold for high prices. Like all beetles in the scarab family, the outer shell provides a very thick layer of protection from predators. The high value and golden shell do make them more vulnerable when it comes to Bell hunters, though."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a scarab beetle! Pfff. I've seen scarier!"
