Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed games of last generation, Red Dead Redemption . The sequel follows the original game’s story and also takes place in the same open-world environment.

For every trophy in Red Dead Redemption 2 there are a certain amount of steps that need to be taken to achieve them. The Zoologist achievement is no different. Throughout the game you will come across multiple wildlife specimens to aid in your goal of becoming a successful rancher. These specimens can be found all over the game and are your first step in completing the Zoologist achievement.

You don’t need to be the best shot to be a great hunter. Like many other animals, the target for you in Red Dead Redemption 2 should not be the largest creature you can take down. It should be the most interesting. And so we have come upon the advantage of the Zoologist. In order to unlock this, you must first complete the Kill the Sheriff trophy. After conversing with the Sheriff, which is the only way to spawn the Zoologist, you are given the option to purchase it with 1000 gold. The first thing you should do is go to the map. You can see how far away the animal you want to hunt is by looking at the star rating (1-5). You can also see the animal


There are a total of 178 distinct Animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 that may be discovered and killed in order to get the Trophy / Achievement, although you do not need to obtain all 178 for the two separate trophies and accomplishments.

Total Animals: 178 Trophies / Achievements 165 – Zoologist Trophies / Achievements 151 – Skin Deep Trophies / Achievements

I’ve listed all of the various creatures and where you may find them below. For ease of navigation, I’ve included time stamps and a video.

You do not need Chapter 5 to complete this, and you also do not need to kill any of the Legendary creatures; there are more than enough animals throughout the game to complete the trophies/achievement.

Another quick note is that, when you find a specific animal for example an Alligator hunt that and save, reload and the small Alligator should spawn. Meaning if you can find one type of animal in that area, chances are another animal of the same species should also spawn there too.

Also, if you still need more animals to be added to your list because you don’t have enough, please let us know. Then have a look at this page! All Legendary Animals Locations in Red Dead Redemption 2 and you should have everything you need to earn both Trophies and Achievements.
