Donating to the museum[edit]

When donating to the museum, Blathers will say the following:

"The gazami crab may be better known by its more descriptive name...the Japanese blue crab. It gets its name from the blue tint sometimes found on its shell and legs. Its paddle-like rear legs are what help it swim freely and quickly through the water. Of course, this gazami crab couldn't swim quickly enough to get away from you!"
