GTA 5 Wildlife Photography Challenge: How to find all animals and unlock the Kraken sub

GTA 5 Wildlife Photography Challenge Kraken sub

There's more to the GTA 5 Wildlife Photography Challenge than great cat pics. Complete this side mission and you'll unlock the Kraken sub for underwater expeditions. To get this submarine you'll have to find a particular Strangers and Freaks side mission which will unlock a task to photograph 20 different animals from wildlife to pets. Snap them all and the Kraken Sub is yours. So let's take a look at how you can get it. 

First find and complete the Paparazzi Strangers and Freaks mission with Franklin

To get started, you need to complete the first Paparazzi Strangers and Freaks mission with Franklin, which is triggered in West Vinewood. With that done, you'll receive a message from Beverly telling you that he's signed you up for a photography competition in GTA 5, after which an email will come in from Los Santos Tourist Info. This contains a list of 20 animals that you need to snap a picture of for the grand prize - the Kraken Submarine! Take a clear shot of each one, email it to LS Tourist Info, and you'll be a step closer to finishing the GTA 5 Wildlife Photography Challenge.

Once you've started the mission it's basically a case of finding and photographing all the animals you need find. To do that simply work your way through this list of creatures and follow the maps to each location. 

Boar

Grand Senora Desert: Found walking on the track just southeast of the Redwood Lights Track - stand still and let it come to you or you’ll scare it off. A cow can also be found at this location.

Border Collie

Vespucci Canals/Prosperity St: Found sat on this street corner while the owner checks out the nearby shop.

Cat

West Vinewood: Found walking down this street then curling up on the driveway.

Chicken-Hawk

Cow

Grand Senora Desert: Found in a field just south of the Redwood Lights Track. A boar can also be found at this location.

Coyote

Hen

Paleto Bay: Found by a hen hutch in a back garden.

Husky

Richman: Found in the back garden of this house. Either a Husky or Retriever will appear here, so revisit until you get the breed you’re looking for.

Mountain Lion

Tongva Hills/Banham Canyon: Found in this canyon - take a vehicle so you can climb on top of it to take the photo, as if you get attacked before submitting it won’t count.

Pig

Great Chaparral: Found in the sty of this pig farm. Natch.

Poodle

Morningwood/Richman: Found on this loop of street, along with a pug and a west highland terrier. Only one will appear at a time, so revisit until you get the breed you’re looking for.
