      Why does this page even exist? Every single endemic life is able to be placed as a pet. The code is horrifyingly messy, the page is terrible to look at, and the information is spotty at best. This page should be deleted.

            there's a lot missing from the list, the regular scalebat, the yellow spider from the forest (vaparanid?), a giant bee from coral (that i don't have cause of Tzi-boi), a bunch of diferent fish... and the ones here barely have any info, like the placement of the pilot hare is the same as the shepperd one, and we have that. Is no one curating the list?

              I found a cactuar cutting during the first quest into the wildspire wastes, just as you enter the area where you will find the baroth for the first time. Just to the right. Also I found a flowering cactuar cutting on the plateau closest to the area 1 camp in area 4 (I think) just as you crawl through the hole from the apaceros nest and dead ahead.

                [PC] Found Prism Hercudrome in Coral Highlands, sector 11. From Northeast Camp, exit camp go right to Sector 13, Go Down to Sector 10. There is a small crevice in a wall connecting to Sector 11. When in sector 11 and if you open the map its location is between the Watermoss and Thunderbug Icons. Or from Sector 5 use the Ropelift to Sector 11. You can see the first big green yellowish coral like tree at your lefthand side, with pink corals on the ground. It is there at the green yellowish coral.
