The Museum

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

"Tiger Beetles are known for their aggressive habits and fast running speed. Their bodies are rather colorful and reflect the sunshine, giving them a shimmery appearance. Tiger-Beetle larvae live in cylindrical burrows and capture insects that wander past with their mandibles."


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

"I caught a tiger beetle! Who was really hunting whom?"
