The Museum

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

"Wharf roaches can be seen along the sea, usually just above the waterline on rocky cliffs. They feed mainly on microalgae and detritus that drift to the seashore, making them cleaners of sorts. They often move in groups and run away quickly when they hear people approaching."


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

"I caught a wharf roach! Even the beaches must be messy!"
