Endemic Life /86
|Shepherd Hare||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Just look at these ginormous ears! Fluffy,|
AND they can discern precise sounds to
avoid danger! They're so clever it hurts!
|Pilot Hare||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Ooh, this is a rare one! It's warm to the|
touch, like a little ball of sunshine!
I bet this little guy just LOVES picnics!
|Woodland Pteryx||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest||Serrated teeth, and those remiges...|
So much in common with prehistoric
birds that it's a veritable living fossil!
|Forest Pteryx||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest||I'm so excited my hands are shaking...|
Its red crown...and that blue plumage! To
think it was in the Ancient Forest all along!
|Cobalt Flutterfly||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest||It's so pretty I'd mistaken it for a flower!|
The scales reflect the light into such a deep
blue that it can only be called a miracle!
|Phantom Flutterfly||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest||These magnificent wings! Their rainbow|
glow is so alluring... I...I can't tear my
eyes away from it! What a masterpiece!
|Climbing Joyperch||Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Oh my Wrog! This is THE quintessential|
ancestor of amphibians! Just as masterful
in the water as on land... Magnificent!
|Forest Gekko||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest||These puppies have cute, beady little|
eyes that can pick out even the smallest
of prey against a patch of brightmoss!
|Wildspire Gekko||Terrestrial Life||Wildspire Waste||Barroth aren't the only ant-eaters in this|
desert! These guys love ants so much they'd
even give Barroth a run for their money!
|Gloom Gekko||Terrestrial Life||Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||What a garish color for such a dark place!|
It just screams, "Danger! Do not touch! And
don't put me ANYWHERE near your mouth!"
|Moonlight Gekko||Terrestrial Life||Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||That shining tail! It's so pretty... I want|
to touch it... I want to be its best friend...
*gasp* I almost fell for it!
|Vaporonid||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Years of animal research and I've never seen|
a web being made! Even if you destroy a web,
it just magically appears again the next day!
|Scavantula||Terrestrial Life||Rotten Vale||These buddies just love rotten meat!|
If you were to drop dead in the Rotten Vale,
you might even be their next meal!
|Revolture||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||These birds are always after large|
monsters' leftovers. If you spot one,
a monster's probably lurking nearby!
|Blissbill||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Their perfectly round eyes and heart-|
shaped faces make them popular pets.
You may have seen some in Astera, too!
|Omenfly||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||See those glowing bellies? Usually they're|
yellow, but they turn red near big monsters...
W-Why are they glowing red near me!?
|Augurfly||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||They only emerge on rainy days, and it's|
said that the day after is guaranteed to
be sunny! They're like good weather charms!
|Scalebat||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||Upon inspection, these seem to have scales.|
And claws...and fangs! Great Gravios! They're
mini-wyverns! I've made a huge discovery!
|Dung Beetle||Terrestrial Life||Wildspire Waste||These fellas roll dung around all day long.|
Need some dung? Then look no further!
What you do with it is none of my business!
|Bomb Beetle||Terrestrial Life||Elder's Recess||Is that an explosive rock it's rolling around!?|
It must have astounding thermal resistance!
Let me just touch its legs to—OUCH!
Great Pink Parexus
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||These fish are found all over the New World,|
show off some amazing primitive biology,
AND they're easy fishing even for beginners!
Great Burst Arowana
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||This fish is literally bursting with explosive|
chemicals! It hides in weedy shallows,
but it'll run away if you wiggle your bait!
Great Bomb Arowana
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||They're even burstier than regular Arowana,|
if you can believe it! They're sensitive to
movement, so don't wiggle that bait!
|Elegant Coralbird||Airborne Life||Coral Highlands||Look! A female Coralbird! They can hover|
silently in the air, and they can eat coral!
What superbly adapted creatures!
|Dapper Coralbird||Airborne Life||Coral Highlands||Coralbirds only allow one chosen male into|
their flock. In other words, this guy's the
top dog—or bird... You know what I mean!
|Andangler||Aquatic Life||Coral Highlands||They like to draw Flying Meduso to their light|
and... CHOMP! It'd definitely be worth staying
up all night to watch them in action!
|Downy Crake||Unclassified Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands||You caught a Downy Crake!? They've been|
seen on the backs of monsters before, but
you're the first person EVER to catch one!
|Bristly Crake||Unclassified Life||Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||Great jumping Jagras! A Bristly Crake!?|
The fleet-footed bird of legend...right
before my very eyes! Someone pinch me...
|Hopguppy||Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Hoarfrost Reach||Its specialized pectoral fins allow it to skip|
on water! It can even GLIDE! You won't be
catching this one with a fishing pole!
|Petricanths||Aquatic Life||Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||Unbelievable... You've managed to fish up|
the legendary, thought-to-have-gone-extinct
Petricanths! I take my hat off to you!
|Paratoad||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||It stores paralyzing gas in its body and|
releases it when threatened! See? Here,
in its stoma—AGH! I...I can't...mooove...
|Sleeptoad||Terrestrial Life||Coral Highlands||It's developed organs that produce a sleep|
gas in order to survive in the Coral Highlands!
When provoked it releases—ZZZZZZzzzzz...
|Nitrotoad||Terrestrial Life||Elder's Recess||This one stores explosive fluids! But don't|
worry, I've learned my lesson with toads,
I won't touch this one... Uh...is it leaking...?
|Wiggler||Terrestrial Life||Coral Highlands||It wiggles in the wind and isn't blown away|
because it's anchored into the ground! Let's
have a look at its feet... URRGH! It's stuck...
|Wiggler Queen||Terrestrial Life||Coral Highlands||This empress of the night only appears when|
there's a full moon! Let's see if she'll deign
to show us her royal feet... URRGH! Nope...
|Vigorwasp||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands||The fluid that it collects in this sac here|
is...that's right, Vitalily nectar! Its healing
properties should be useful in a pinch.
|Giant Vigorwasp||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest||Its nectar has stronger healing properties|
than average, and it even releases
a healing mist when its sac is ruptured!
|Flying Meduso||Airborne Life||Coral Highlands||Seeing Flying Meduso is a dead give-away|
that there's a wind current nearby!
Find it, and YOU too can fly like the wind!
|Carrier Ant||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Rotten Vale||They can lift incredible weights, and even|
made the Wildspires. They could probably even
carry you! If you put down your huge weapon...
|Hercudrome||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest||Only seven of these are said to exist in the|
entire forest! To think that I'd ever see one
in my lifetime... I'm... *sob* I'M SO HAPPY!
|Gold Hercudrome||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||The Bringer of Light? The Bug of Brilliant|
Gold? I...I'm speechless! My...my heart feels
like it's been dipped in golden bliss!
|Prism Hercudrome||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||This is the... I... How in the WORLD did you|
manage to... Ooh, the colors... One, two...
four... It's blinding me with rainbow colors!
|Emperor Hopper||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste||Authoritative expression... crown-like head|
and mantle-like wings... *gasp* A real
emperor! F-Forgive us our impertinence!
|Tyrant Hopper||Terrestrial Life||Rotten Vale||Sometimes nature makes violent evolutions.|
BUT! To fully understand it, we must yet
reach out a hand and... OUCH! I-It bit me!
|Flashfly||Airborne Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||Wow, this puppy's BRIGHT! Even a large|
monster would be stunned by it, I'm sure.
It's like a living Flash Bomb...with wings!
|Grandfather Mantagrell||Airborne Life||Coral Highlands||Be gentle with this fella. GENTLE! If you hit|
it with even ONE shot from your slinger, it'll
come careening down to the ground.
|Iron Helmcrab||Terrestrial Life||Wildspire Waste||Wow! It really DOES look like a helmet!|
And it's carrying... a Piercing Pod? Well,
I'm sure it won't mind if I take—Ow!
|Soldier Helmcrab||Terrestrial Life||Rotten Vale||They carry Slinger Thorns and march around|
in groups just like soldiers! Does that make
thorns their rations? Do they...eat it? Ew...
|Emerald Helmcrab||Terrestrial Life||Wildspire Waste, Rotten Vale||That avant-garde shell design, that superb|
silhouette and color scheme... Forget
research, I'm getting out my sketch book!
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||They like to swim around in relatively deep|
water. Try wiggling the lure if it doesn't bite
Great Gastronome Tuna
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||These big fish like to snatch away bait! Use|
the rod's flexibility to your benefit to bring it
in, and be sure to check it for items!
Great King Marlin
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Hoarfrost Reach||I knew that these are known to approach the|
shore in search of prey, but great job catching
it! And not losing your pole in the process!
|Aquatic Life||Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||Golden-scaled cave-dwellers, they'll hightail it|
if you wiggle your bait! They also like to nibble
before taking a real bite, so don't get duped!
|Aquatic Life||Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||Platinum-scaled cave-dwellers, they'll hightail|
it if you wiggle your bait! You're going to need
a lot of patience if you want to catch one.
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||Small cave-dwelling fish with precious scales,|
they'll try to psych you out with a nibble, so
be patient—and don't wiggle your bait!
|Aquatic Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||These fish are useful in restorative items for|
their high nutritional value! Just wiggle your
bait in some deep water, or blast them out!
|Aquatic Life||Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess, Hoarfrost Reach||Watch out—their bodies contain the same|
substances as Devil's Blight! They're hard to
spot, but they react noticeably to moving bait.
|Gold Scalebat||Airborne Life||These scales reflect the light so perfectly, they|
look like pure gold! I thought Scalebats only liked
the dark, but these babies wanted to SHINE!
|Gold Helmcrab||Terrestrial Life||Wowzers, even Helmcrabs have gone gold!|
Is it holding...a Dragon Pod!? Guess when
you gotta eat, you gotta eat!
|Shiny Gold Helmcrab||Terrestrial Life||This little one isn't too different from your|
regular Gold Helmcrab, but it's a lot shinier.
Guess it hoarded more grub for itself?
|Copper Calappa||Terrestrial Life||Holy Hermitaurs! A shiny crab!? Looks like|
it'll drop something if you follow it. Wait,
isn't this a piece of gold!? NICE!
|Gold Calappa||Terrestrial Life||Look at the shell on this thing! It makes me|
just wanna pick it up and scream "big gold
haul coming through!"
|Tsuchinoko||Terrestrial Life||Jeepers, talk about strange with a capital S.|
Its elastic body, and odd skin... I think I've
heard fairy tales about this thing before...
|Cactuar||Unclassified Life||Wildspire Waste||It's one of the cute critters from Eorzea!|
I tried to pet it, but this little guy's got thorns—
a thousand of them! I'll be tweezing for weeks...
|Cactuar Cutting||Unclassified Life||Wildspire Waste||It's one of the cute critters from Eorzea!|
It's kinda like a cactus, uh, if a cactus
had legs and could run at mach speed...
|Flowering Cactuar Cutting||Unclassified Life||Wildspire Waste||It's one of the cute critters from Eorzea!|
Its adorable little flower on top makes
me just wanna squeeze it—OUCH!
|Nekker||Unclassified Life||Ancient Forest||I wonder if what the witcher said was true...|
Do nekkers really grow vicious when in a swarm?
I think there's a place where we can test this...
|Stonebill||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||These clever kiddos raise a ruckus when a|
large monster enters their territory. Just
amazing, really. It's—OK, SHUT UP ALREADY!
|Rime Beetle||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||These cuties roll snowballs, but they aren't|
building snowmen. They're gathering crystals
of ice into big crystalbursts. So talented!
|Pearlspring Macaque||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||Nothing beats a hot spring when it's cold!|
These monkeys get it. They also get minor
heat stroke from staying in too long. Oof!
|Goldspring Macaque||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||Whoa! A single gleaming golden monkey mixed|
in with the hot springs tour group! It's
glittering! Dazzling! And...soft-boiled?
|Crowned Prawn||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||These glowy boys light up dark caves! They|
rock the creepy-cute thing, but I don't need
to see a whole bunch wriggling at once...
|Moon Slug||Airborne Life||Hoarfrost Reach||They stay in caves during the day, but come|
out to feed at night. If you see a bunch of
them, keep an eye out for a rare guest!
|Duffel Penguin||Terrestrial Life||Hoarfrost Reach||Looking at these guys, I can hear their moms|
saying, "If you're cold, put on a jacket!"
Hmm, does the hood come off? ...No. SORRY!
|Arrowhead Gekko||Terrestrial Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands, Rotten Vale, Elder's Recess||These guys eat the bugs that gather around|
nutritious nuts. So it's as if their arrow-
shaped heads point straight to bug buffets!
|Blue Diva||Treetop Life||Ancient Forest, Wildspire Waste, Coral Highlands||Shhh, quiet now! Hear that beautiful song?|
It's meant as a mating call to the males,
and who wouldn't fall for a voice like that?
|Sealord's Crestfish||Aquatic Life||Hoarfrost Reach||These beauties lurk at the bottom, save when|
surfacing to feed by night. They're so rare,
they're said to be familiars of the sea god.
Great Glass Parexus
|Aquatic Life||Hoarfrost Reach||These fish have transparent scales, so|
you can see their skeleton and organs.
They only live in cold environments.
|Wintermoon Nettle||Unclassified Life||Hoarfrost Reach||Ahh, look at those tentacles! I always wanted|
to count them for myself! OK OK, one...
two...three—Hey, quit moving! One...two..
|Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||Don't be fooled by the sleepy face on these|
critters! Some say they're the ones who
shaped the landscape of the Guiding Lands.
|Mossy Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||This one's all covered in moss! Must be|
pretty healthy, too, since it's sprouted
flowers. Let's touch it! ...Oh. Weird...
|Rocky Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||Aww, look! It's got a little helmet on!|
Safety first, eh? Hahaha! Ahem. Anyway,
these Moly are the best at digging!
|Fluffy Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||Oh...oh my gosh... It's so...so SOFT!|
It's like a fluffy pink cloud! C-Can I keep
it and use it as a pillow? Please?
|Spiny Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||This black-spiked Moly evolved to see|
through effluvium with its bright golden eyes.
Quite the VISIONARY, don't you think? Heheh.
|Rowdy Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||The fiery red fur on this Moly makes it look|
like a tough guy, but all it wants is to be
tickled on its belly. See? Coochy coochy coo!
|Frosty Moly||Unclassified Life||The Guiding Lands||The white fur on this Moly isn't just warm|
and fluffy, it serves as camouflage in the
snow, too! Ooh...it's so chubby and cute!
