Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:
"My feathers, could there be a more adorable sea creature than the umbrella octopus! I daresay not! Those deep-sea octopuses are on the smallish side and use the cutest ear-like fins to flutter about. Meanwhile, it's the web stretched between their tentacles that gives them their name. Hoo, it's true! With arms stretched wide, they look for all the world like an umbrella! Though surely the last thing the umbrella octopus wants...is to stay dry."
