There are seven Legendary Animals added to the game with the release of Red Dead Online: Naturalist update. Some of these can be found from the start while others require you to complete the Animal Field Guide compendium. In this guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about all the Legendary Animals in Red Dead Online: Naturalist and their locations.
Red Dead Online Legendary Animals Locations
Legendary Animals in Red Dead Online: Naturalist are fairly hard to find – akin to the game’s singleplayer mode. The following is a complete list of all the Legendary Animals that can be found in RDO: Naturalist.
1. Legendary Fox
Legendary Fox in RDO: Naturalist has a lot of variants i.e. Marble, Ota, and Cross. They’re usually found around dusk. You’ll find Marble Fox somewhere between Cairn Lake and Spider Gorge. Ota Fox can be found between the Flat Iron Lake and Rhodes – on the left of Southfield Flats.
2. Legendary Boar
You can find the Wapka Boar toward the west side of Quaker’s Cove – northeast of Lower Montana River. It can also spawn in the marshy area between Stillwater Creek and Thieves Landing. To find Cogi Boar, you’ll need to head to the north side of Bluewater Marsh at dawn – north of Saint Denis. And lastly, the Icahi Boar can be found during a mission from Harriet.
3. Legendary Beaver
Legendary Beaver in Red Dead Online seems to roam around Lake Owanjila. You may have to wait for quite a good while in order to make it spawn. Since a lot of players will probably be hunting for it, you can change instances to make it spawn.
4. Legendary Wolf
There are three species of the Legendary Wolf: Moonstone, Emerald, and Onyx. Remember that finding these require you to be at Naturalist Rank 5.
To find the Moonstone, you’ll need to head over to the north side Isabelle Lake. While not confirmed, a few players have reported that it only appears after you’ve successfully killed Emerald.
Emerald, on the other hand, near the Moonstone Pond. Lastly, to find Onyx, you need to head over to Wapiti Indian Reservation, on the left side of Grizzlies.
5. Legendary Bison
You can find the Legendary Bison near the Heartland Overflow.
6. Legendary Elk
Legendary Elk also has two different species: Ozula and Inahme. They seem to prefer fog so make sure to wait for the right weather. Ozula can be found in Cholla Springs (on top of the map icon) and Inahme is a quest reward from Harriet Davenport.
7. Legendary Ram
You can find the Legendary Chalked Ram toward the northeast of Donner Falls on the map. Another variant of Legendary Ram is associated with Harriet’s questline.
8. Legendary Cougar
To be updated.
Legendary Animals Tips and Tricks
After speaking with Harriet Davenport in Strawberry, you’ll be able to buy a few things from her. These include the Animal Field Guide compendium, a map showing all the locations of Legendary Animals, sedatives, and more.
The map is your best friend when it comes to finding these animals. However, do note that finding them is completely RNG-dependent.
You can spend hours and hours in an area without ever coming across one. You can always change your instance to get a better shot at finding them.
Moreover, some Legendary Animals prefer to show up after you reach a specific Naturalist Rank. Aside from this, the time of the day and weather conditions also affect their appearance.
We’d also recommend spending some money on buying Legendary Animal Pheromones which you’ll be able to use to know whether the area you’re scouting has any Legendary Animals or not – it can be a life-saver.
