This bug will attack the player if they get too close. They will wake up outside their house if this happens.

The Museum

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

"Scorpions resemble crabs and are in the class arachnida, though they aren't aquatic. Most species possess venom, but of the 1,000 or more species, only 25 are deadly to humans. Scorpion eggs hatch inside the female's abdomen, and the young spend time on her back after birth."


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

"I caught a scorpion! Not so fast now, are ya?!"
