The Museum

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

"Zebra turkeyfish have long, beautiful fins that flow like gowns as they swim through the sea. However, these aquatic beauties pack a punch, as their fins are filled with poisonous spikes. Aside from protection against predators, this poison comes in handy for turn wars between males. The losing male succumbs to the poison in a matter of days, making these battles life and death."

"I caught a zebra turkeyfish! What are you? Make up your mind!"
