Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Animals Locations Guide


You need to keep playing the story missions while capturing animals along the way and eventually Ocelot will call you via the iDROID app to tell you an Animal Preservation platform has been constructed at Mother Base. It’s free as well.

Each species of animal will get its own enclosure area to live in. You may need to complete the story mission #25.

Use your helicopter to get to Mother Base, you can move between platforms using the iDROID’s menu while in the Aerial Command Center.

How to find missing Animals?:

A) Play main story missions with D-Dog, who will tell you when Wild Animals appear near you. After using the tranquilizer gun to put the animal to sleep but don’t kill them. Then Fulton-lift extract the unique Wild Animals you encounter directly from the game’s open world to your zoo.
B) Play animal capture Side Ops. These let you hunt down the larger and more deadly animals. 
C) Set traps for them with Capture Cages, which automatically empty at the end of any mission. This is ideal for finding the small to mid-sized (ground-based and even flying) animals that are normally tough to catch.

  1. Go into the iDROID app’s Development section and select Weapons / Items. Then develop a new “Support Weapon: Placed Weapon” called the Capture Cage. – Animal capture cages can be placed in the area of operations and enables humane capture of small to mid-sized animals. Support Unit will handle the extraction of captured animals. Place the traps in different water-rich, desert & mountaintop areas to maximize the different animals you’ll catch.
  2. Take D-Dog with you on missions as he’ll detect any nearby Wild Animals and they even get marked for your convenience.
  3. Outside of story missions AKA Episodes, you should also complete Side Missions that involve capturing animals. They are of a high difficulty level.
  4. Be on the lookout for birds, they perch themselves at the edges of cliffs. When you see them flying around you can mark them with your sniper gun’s scope, and then don’t shoot them as they fly (very hard to do) but wait for them to sit down again before you tranq them.

The Animals are listed in the per Side Ops mission.
