Donating to the museum[edit]

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

In New Horizons[edit]

"The giraffe stag beetle is a bug of preposterous proportions. Not only is its body rather large, it has two long, jagged jaws that can put it over five inches in size! The giraffe stag beetle's long jaws have been compared to the long neck of the giraffe...hence the name. But I say such comparisons are a stretch. Giraffe necks are NOT lined with spikes! If I were a giraffe, I would protest."

Commissioning a model[edit]

If the player brings three Giraffe Stags to Flick to commission a model, he will say the following:

"R-really? You want a sculpture of a giraffe stag? Reaping shears of the netherworld? Those twin razory scythes that slice into foes! Those crimson eyes that bore into your very soul! I promise this will be my intense-est masterpiece, and I shall title it The Grand Giraffe Stag Beetle!"
