The Museum

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

"Snails are mollusks that live on land and are related to shellfish like clams and oysters. One snail can play the role of both a male and a female, so it can lay eggs all by itself. Newly hatched snails already have a tiny shell, so right from birth they are easily identified. Most species have clockwise spirals on their shells, though spirals that go counterclockwise are possible."


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

"I caught a snail! Ok, well, maybe I found a snail."
