Donating to the museum[edit]

Donating in New Leaf[edit]

After the player has donated a Saw Shark to Blathers, it will appear in the section for fish and deep sea creatures, specifically in the large tank in the north-eastern room.

"Saw sharks got their name from their long head lined with spikelike teeth much like a chain-saw blade. Sensors located below their mouths detect prey as they press their flat bodies against the seabed to search. They will sometimes swing their 'saws' wildly amid a school of fish, catching any that are struck."
