The Museum

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

"People assume squids have legs, but those are actually arms. There are 10 in all; two are used to grab prey. To swim, they twist their fins and expel water from inside their bodies to allow for fluid motion. The ink they shoot when threatened forms into the shape of a squid, acting as a sort of body double."


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

"I caught a squid! Yes, I did!"
