Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain animal locations guide

There are over forty different animals you can capture in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, which you can send back to your Animal Conservation Platform at Mother Base once you've completed at least three out of Missions 07, 08, 09 and 10. Some of these animals can be tranquilised and either Fulton recovered or manually picked up if small enough, whereas others can only be collected by placing a Capture Cage in a specific location. Read on for more information, and you'll build up an impressive menagerie in no time!
