Terra Nil: All Animal Locations List

An important aspect of Terra Nil is finding the different animals in each of the planet’s biomes. However, finding them isn’t always easy, as the in-game text doesn’t always reveal what conditions players need to meet. That’s exactly why we’ve created this handy guide you can use to find all animal locations in the game.

Below is a full list of animals in Terra Nil, along with their descriptions and the requirements to get them. Players must satisfy the conditions marked in the Requirements column in the table below to locate animals when scanning for them.

RELATED: Terra Nil: How to Scan for Animals

And there you have it! That’s where you can find all animals in the game. Sometimes, you’ll need to adjust the ecosystem to accommodate the animals to spawn. If the scan doesn’t work at first, try scanning right next to your original scan to see if that changes anything. Again, each one of these conditions must be fully met for you to locate the animal.
