The Museum

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

"The triangular teeth of sharks appear to have evolved from scales sometime in the past. When a tooth breaks, it quickly falls out and a new one grows in, keeping them always in good shape for prey. Sharks can be fearsome creatures, able to smell blood from several miles away. They can even jump out of the water to catch prey, making them powerful predators. Contrary to their tough image, their bones are made out of cartilage and erroneously used as health food."


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

"I caught a shark! GAH! Why am I holding it?!"
