Donating to the museum
In New Leaf
After the player donates a red king crab to the museum, it can be found in the large pool in the first room of the Sea exhibit, along with many other species of sea creatures. It can be found along with the other crab species. The exhibit has this to say about the red king crab: "These are one of the most popular and sought-after species of crab in the world. They have eight legs, including their claws, but also two small legs under their carapace, making 10 in all. At full size, their leg span can easily reach more than one yard wide, making them big ocean dwellers. Their thick legs are packed with meat, making them a prized catch for many fishers around the world."
In New Horizons
when donating to the museum Blathers will say the following
"The red king crab is a mighty crustacean to be sure. Though it must be said that there is some debate about its royal lineage. King crabs, unlike other crabs, are thought to be descended from hermit crabs, you see. And have you noticed... GASP! They have but eight legs, though conventional crabs have 10! It matters not, I say. For the red king crab is as regal as can be. Weighing up to 20 pounds with a leg span reaching five feet... I bow to this crab's nobility."
