Rockstar Games are known for their immersive open worlds, and Red Dead Redemption 2 is no different. Players can traverse a massive, Western-themed area full of interesting quests and creatures to meet. One of the more interesting parts of the game are the array of “legendary animals” which populate the world. Hunting these beasts will result in the player getting a perfect hide. Rather than have you stumble around looking for these creatures, we’ve assembled the locations of the legendary animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 for you here. Thank us later.
