Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

Upon donating the Paper Kite Butterfly to the museum, Blathers will say the following:

"With its black-and-white-striped wing pattern, the paper kite butterfly is both elegant and pretty... PRETTY POISONOUS I MEAN! Hoo dear! Where was I? Oh yes...Even this butterfly's black-and-white-striped larva and little golden pupae are toxic to predators. Indeed, the paper kite butterfly's foul flavor is famous, and thus birds, in particular, steer clear of the fiends. THIS bird most of all!"

The Paper Kite Butterfly can be found in the lab, and is the only butterfly that is in the upper section of the museum.
