Donation to the museum[]

In New Horizons[]

When either donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):

"Yes, yes. The blue weevil beetle does come in beautiful shades of blue and green. The colors are so bright, some say it looks like a living jewel. But I say it looks like a weevil...and weevil rhymes with EVIL. Draw your own conclusions from there. Hoot! I certainly have!

Additional information[]

Weevils are a type of beetle with characteristic elongated snouts. They are herbivorous and many are considered pests to farm crops. Unlike most insects, weevils use their snouts to drill into their food and then eat it from the inside out. There are over 400 families of weevils and classifying them can be very complicated.

The genus Eupholus from New Guinea feature some of the most vibrant and beautiful weevils. All species within this genus are bright blue and feed on yams leaves, which are toxic to other animals. Because of this, the weevils themselves are also toxic and their bright blue bodies serve as a warning to any would-be predators.
