Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

Blathers has this to say about the earth-boring dung beetle:

"Earth-boring dung beetles are considered quite handsome by some, thanks to their metallic luster. In fact, some even think them to be good omens and bringers of favorable fortune. But I must protest! These field- ravaging pests love to burrow under piles of dung and lay their eggs. They raise their young under DUNG! Need I say more? Ick. I think not."

When donated, it is found near the entrance of the exhibit, crawling around on the ground between the two trees holding the Wasp and Bagworm.
