Grand Theft Auto V Animals & Wildlife Database

All Animals in Grand Theft Auto V - Wildlife Database


In this section you can find a full guide to the Animal Species featured in Grand Theft Auto V, including all Land Animals, Birds and Sea Creatures that are part of the GTA V Wildlife and ecosystem.

There is a total of 28 Animal Species in the game, 13 of which are exclusive to the Next Gen (PS4, Xbox One & PC) edition of the game - plus the special presence of Bigfoot. Several of the animals appear in multiple look variations.

With the Next Gen edition of the game, players are also to control almost all animals by finding special Peyote Plants. After consuming one, the protagonist will fall under a hallucination effect, and temporarily transform into one of the animals. Collecting all the Land & Air Peyote Plants will unlock the "Cryptozoologist" Achievement, and the ability to use the animals as part of Director Mode.

Also, photographing 20 of these animal species is required for the "Wildlife Photography Challenge" side mission.

Clicking on each animal brings you to their detailed information, including their Habitats / Locations, Screenshots and more details.

GTA V Dogs Breeds

There are seven Dog breeds appearing in Grand Theft Auto V, five of which are exclusive to the Next Gen edition. Franklin takes care of Chop, a Rottweiler, and can interact and play with him.

GTA V Sea Animals

Unlike Land Animals & Birds, the Sea Creatures in GTA V are playable exclusively through the Peyote Plants, as they are not available to be selected in Director's Mode. The Humpback Whale, which is the biggest animal in the entire game, makes exception and is not playable in any way, as there isn't a Peyote Plant that unlocks it.
