          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.

                  This also misses the sparkling/shiny gold helmcrab (I think that might be the name? I have the game in another language so I don't know), which is found in the Kulve Taroth area, usually bathing under the sun in a corner. Also, the Bristly Crake can be found riding a Gastodon in Elder's Recess area 5 (it's just a theory but it might be sligtly more common than mosswines as nearly all the experience I've seen about it stated they found him on Gastodons). It needs the Mimetic Mantle to be caought, as it will run away as soon as the monster it rides on spots you.

                    There is missing some pets here it seems. I have captured a few, that have not been mentioned here: Copper Calappa (the crab that steals gold in Kulve Taroth siege from the piles), seen almost everywere in Taroth's area. Can be placed in most surfaces, except the Entryway, trees, flying spot, pot and water.
                    Gold Calappa (bigger big brother version of copper calappa, also steals chunks of gold, instead of chips) Seems to be found commonly in the first siege area, on the western side of map (captured him there myself)
                    Lastly, during the lunastra mission, No Remorse (Elder's Recess), during my solo battle with Teostra, after teostra left, i saw a glowing magma buffball running away to the side of map, then disappearing. The ball appeared in the area, where Lavasioth seems most of the time to appear, cragged land and Nitrofrogs. From the looks of it, it wouldnt have been a Bristly or a Downy crake, as they only seem to appear on non combat monsters. Might need to do some expeditions to Elder Recess to see if i can capture it. And no, it wasent a magma flow, it was more of... jumping up and down when it was running.
