Animal Locations

You can find animals for your Chao hidden across the different levels. This page will first list which animals are generally found in which levels, and will then tell you the fastest way to collect a specific kind of animal.

Levels

Here you can see which levels contain which animals. The first four animals can be found in unusual places, cages, hidden inside pipes, or inside the second Chao Box.

In order to destroy cages, you should look for a rocket nearby which you can fire by pressing a button. In order to get an animal out of a pipe, you need to stand next to it and whistle with the B button. You can also find these animals inside the robots created by Dr. Eggman, such as the bomb-throwing monkeys, or the robots that look like E-102 Gamma — please note that most robots are GUN robots, which contain Chaos Drives instead of animals.

The fifth animal listed for each level belongs to either the gold or black groups, and is found in the third Chao Box; it can also sometimes be found in very rare locations in the level.
