All over both Afghanistan and Africa are 47 different species of wild animals, all of which you will need to hunt down and bring back to Mother Base alive. Some of them will physically be in the field, like bears and zebras, but a lot of them can only be obtained by placing animal cages on the ground and returning to base. The easiest way to place capture cages down is to crouch and mash the place button, and you can also place all of your cages in the exact same spot. Bait bottles are not necessary.
Here is a list of all of the animals in the game. If an animal is "in the field", that means that you can shoot it with a tranquilizer and that the animal exists physically. Maps show where the animals can be found, but the maps may not show all available locations; a location will not appear on your encyclopedia map unless you find the animal there yourself, so the maps have shown where I myself have found them. The provided maps below have been made as full and complete as possible with the known information about where to find them at this time. Some notes for certain animals may appear under the maps as picture captions.
