What are the locations and conditions for catching the rare pets?

Is there a list anywhere that shows the general locations of all the rare pets? I have also heard that time of day and weather condition can be a factor too.

Just to be clear, I’m talking about the pets that are not always present, or only present at special times, when youre in each map zone. This site has a few good guides but I could only find two, and they are for specific creatures.

Answer

I’m going to list every endemic life marked with a special border in the Hunter’s Notes.

Terrestrial Life

Aquatic Life

Airborne Life

Treetop Life

  • Forest Pteryx: a bright, blue and red flying beast found leaping from tree to tree in area 5 and area 15 of the Ancient Forest.
  • Gold Hercudrome: a gold beetle, found during the night on trees in the Ancient Forest (area 6) and the Wildspire Waste (area 5).
  • Prism Hercudrome: an iridescent beetle, found at dusk and dawn in the Ancient Forest (area 1), the Wildspire Waste (area 10), the Coral Highlands (area 11), the Rotten Vale (area 11), and the Elder’s Recess (area 3). Unlocks the “Rainbow Bright” achievement.

Unclassified Life

In addition, some fish can spawn in a Great Size variant, which offers more research points and better items:

Great Fish

In addition to being larger, Great Size fish are also noticeably brighter than their regular counterparts.

When a Great Size fish spawns, it appears in addition to all the fish that are normally found at a fishing spot. If you see more than the usual number of fish, one of them is a Great fish.

  • Blue Diva: a blue bird with a long tail, constantly singing. Found in the Ancient Forest (area 11, area 17, and area 17 again), the Wildspire Waste (three1 different spots1 in area 5), and the Coral Highlands (a total of four different spots in area 6). Can’t be caught in some of these locations, as they are too far to reach with the Capture Net. However, instead of disappearing when startled, the Blue Diva will simply move to a different location in the same map. Keep chasing it! Unlocks the “Sweet Melody” achievement.
