Donating to the museum[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"Hoo my! What a large fish! If I remember correctly, these beasties can only be caught in ponds, wot wot! Catfish whiskers don't actually sting, you know. The 'sting' comes from stiff pectoral barbs located below the gills. Simply ecstatic to have this fine fellow. We'll take good care of him. Hoo! I promise you that!"
