When you hand him your bug, it will always bee in a cage. Blathers eye will pop out of his head and he will all but shout. Since Blathers is just beginning to learn about his job and other things, he can not identify fossils yet. You must send them the Farway Museum to have them examined and then wait for them to send it back.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk Blathers no longer talks about how fish can be cooked or eaten but instead describes something special about the fish such as their abilities, similar to what he does with fossils and bugs as well. He still has a disgust for bugs that has seem to grown ever worse; maybe because he has seen so many. Blathers will get very excited at the completion of fossils and wont talk much about paintings other then saying something nice about them.
Blathers is an honest worker who is not afraid to speak his mind if you do something that he doesn't like. Sometimes he does get a bit moody and says that the progress of the Museum has not changed much since there is only one staff member on the Museum - him. Besides that, he is a very talkative owl. He sleeps during the day and is awake at night because he is nocturnal. All in all, he loves what he does and makes sure that things get done, making him a great asset to your town.

- Sister of Celeste, who runs the Observatory in the Museum.
"Swing by your town's museum to meet this unique trio. Blathers is a talkative owl who runs and maintains the exhibits while his sister, Celeste, charts the night sky from the top-floor observatory. Step downstairs and introduce yourself to Brewster, a chill dude who runs the basement café called the Roost." - Prima Official Strategy Guide (Blathers, Celeste and Brewster)
