Donating to the Museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon donating a Chambered Nautilus to the Museum, it can be found in the small tank on the left hand side in the first room of the ocean exhibit. The exhibit has this to say about the Chambered Nautilus:

"These creatures are related to both octopi[sic] and squids and originated about 60 million years ago. They have air and body fluid in their shells and move by adjusting the amount of body fluid inside. This allows them to either float or sink depending on the situation they find themselves in. They have nearly 90 tentacles that stick out from under their shells to grab on to rocks or prey."
