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.
