Most people don’t seem to know this, but they can be found in large numbers in the snow area on the island. Personally, I was at the area where it was ice turning to regular grass, and I saw around 6 just walking around there, but sadly I couldn’t harvest them because there was also a pack of rexes and carnos, and it wouldn’t be worth it. -Zakiel
When I was on like level 20 in single player i used to find these guys everywhere, and i thought they were only useful for a handful of chitin. Now I’m on level 88 and i actually NEED black and silicia pearls and oil I haven’t seen one in months.
It all depends, sometimes you’ll find a bunch of them, sometimes you won’t find any. They spawn very frequently near large masses of shallow water— but the water must connect to the ocean. I find them in the mouth of the rivers near shallow water. More often then not they spawn in the south or near the red obelisk if you pace yourself towards the snow biome you will definitely encounter a few along the beach.
