The Museum

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

"They are related to spiral shells. Also, they have lids that cover the openings of their shells. When they walk, they remove the lid and move in the shell by shuffling their feet, much like snails. They become active at night and eat seaweed. They are delicious when cooked in the shell."


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

"I got a turban shell! It's like a little fancy hat!"
