Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon donating an Ear Shell 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 is found close to the entrance of the large saltwater exhibit. The exhibit has this to say about the Ear Shell:

"They resemble young abalone, as they are directly related to them, though they act more like snails. They live in various habitats, but being snaillike, they actually have feelers to get around the ocean."
