Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

"Yes, yes. The blue weevil beetle does come in beautiful shades of blue. The colors are so bright, some say it looks like a living jewel. But I say it looks like a weevil...and weevil rhymes with EVIL. Draw your own conclusions from there. Hoot! I certainly have!"
