Endemic Life are creatures found in Monster Hunter World (MHW) across many locations that can be captured by a hunter's Net or Fishing pole. They are not hostile, but will be scared away easily, making their study and capture difficult.
Some Endemic Life creatures also present Environmental Hazards or useful effects - see Environment and Hazards for more information. Endemic creatures are classified into 5 types, following the ingame Monster Field Guide.
Endemic life have sizes, and a Detailed Settings option is available under Place Your Pets in your room. (Patch 6.02)
Each fish page contains the Great Size version reward when applicable, Great Size fishes randomly spawn near their own species.

once saw a bristly crake.... I now hate Banbaros guts! (wasn't even looking for it)
Fatalis? Alatreon? What are you talking about my friend? C'mon! Let's go check for a Bristly Crake again! We'll get it this time!
The true endgame
In Elder's Recess Northwest camp there is an indent in the wall (actually visible on the map) with a fish skeleton and a cavern beyond. It seems that there is lava below due to the glow. You can only walk a little way in before you are blocked by rocks, but there is the perfect amount of room to throw your net in. It isn't a treasure spot, but it seems like a spot were something might float up. Why add a strange little cove with high detail for no reason?
What is the likelihood that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has an undiscovered endemic life?
There IS such thing as the great gastronome tuna, when me and my brother caught it with the great king marlin, that was the best expedition to The Ancient Forest ever!
dont dip your balls in paint
who need fishing rod when you can use net lmao
Am I the only one who frickin hates the bristly crakes? I've literally gone on 100+ ancient forest / wildspire waste expeditions with Ghillie Mantle and checked every single apceros / aptonoth around. The one time they showed up a great jagras ate the aptonoth they were on. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
moly is actually in unclassified life
Is there a great version of the Sealord’s Crestfish does anyone know?
Great Wetfish Great Sushifish Great Burst Arowana Correct me if I’m wrong but there’s new aquatic species not listed here (not sure if they are pre-Iceborne or Iceborne) I caught the sushifish and wetfish in Hoarfrost 9 near the Troupers Burst Arowana in area 2 where the piscine researcher is
There is a new rare moly for the Tundra Region called the Glacial Moly.
The quest "Every Hunter's Dream II" guarantees a Queen Wiggler with every wiggler group.
New rare moly for volcanic area of GL, Rowdy Moly.
Three of the rare Molys of each area of the guiding lands are missing (I think they are called Mossy Moly, Fluffy Moly and Spiny Moly. The fourth one is the Rocky Moly).
I found a Blue Diva in the Ancient Forest just down the ramp of Camp 11.
I found Blue Diva twice in the Wildspire Waste in area 5 (the winding upwards path near the forest that ends at a small nest at the top). Someone told me they found an "Arrowhead Gecko" in that area, but I haven't found it yet.
I just caught a blue diva which is a bird in coral highlands 4 rarity no data on it
Where’s the iceborne endemic life
Finally finished my endemic field guide. The only reward is the Guild Card background Wild, Wild, Wildlife, which features many wildlife on the border, such as the Dapper Coralbird and Downy Crake.
Gonna catch em all
I got Downy Crake before the bounty.
add more Pls
Can we get a marker for fish with a large version?
Is the wiki up to date ?
You need to add the three cactuars.
* golden calappa varient same area as copper calappa
I caught a Giant Goldenfish where the Petricanth Spawns.
added all pages for treetop, unclassified and airborne (missing screenshots for flashfly, cobalt flutterfly and normal hercudrome)
There are also giant versions of many of the fish, they come up as a separate entry in the guide and pet list.
There is the regular Hercudrome too, the one there are only 7 of in the Ancient Forest.
downy crake and petricanth should be added to the list
i am Akishomos ans i see one you don't have ^^ : Terrestrial Life - Soldier HelmCrabe
