"I got a chambered nautilus! Who loses? Not us! Just go with it..." —New Leaf

Donation to the museum

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"These creatures are related to both octopuses and squids and originated about 60 million years ago. They have air and body fluid in their shells and move by adjusting the amount of body fluid inside. This allows them to either float or sink depending on the situation they find themselves in. They have nearly 90 tentacles that can stick out from under their shells to grab on to rocks or prey."

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, Blathers states that the chambered nautilus is the closest alive relative to the ammonite upon donating the ammonite to the museum.
