    There are eight creatures in total that you will need to encounter throughout Submerged.

    All bar one of the creatures are in the water with the only land creature being one of the creatures that is stalking Miku throughout the game.

    1.Dolphins are hard to miss and will most likely follow you around (annoying you)
    2.Flying Fish are the little ones, you'll see these in group
    3.Whale that jumps out the water (found near the compass North of the map) or on the outskirts of the city
    4.Manta Ray
    5.Pelicans can be found sitting on top of the water
    6.Human like creatures, you may need to use the telescope to capture these guys as you won't get close to them and can only see them when attempting to go for packages.
    7.Whale: I've seen this swimming a lot near the "home" location on the map, pretty sure it's the most common whale
    8.Whale Shark. Easily identifiable by its fin. Mostly around the outskirts of the city

    Most should come up as seen when you get close but you can use the telescope if need be. You can see which animals you are missing by looking in your journal in game.

    *The Human like Creatures are missable, if you don't get them throughout the Story they will not appear in Explore mode, all animals will however*

    If you want to see the proper images of the animals I did a more extensive guide here

    C64 Mat@Psycosyicidal is correct - this achievement is not missable. After finishing the story, head out of the "home" clock tower towards your boat. Across from you, you can see a ruined building to the right, attached to a smaller building with lots of moss hanging from it. Above this moss is a tree - zoom in to the right of this tree with the telescope, and one of the humanoid creatures is squatting on the ledge with his hands on his knees. For me, this showed up after finishing the sixth story building, and remained after completing the story.

    TheOnlyMattohad to do a second run. it seems if it glitches on you and you get the card for the humanoid (and not the achievement) do not save and quit like i did. forced a second play that took all of 30 mins but still irritating.

    Struggled hard with this one guys. This is a solution for the zombie/humanoid guys only.

    So some people have said that there is one that spawns across from the home base, this is true, however, I couldn't get him to trigger for the life of me.

    So I found another easy spot. The billboard landmark south east from the home base has a spawner. He spawns north west of the billboard. He's beneath a tree on a vine covered ledge of a flat top building (building closest to the billboard). I've seen him spawn in other YouTube videos so it appears this is a common spawn point. I cannot say if this dude spawns after the game is finished.

    I was struggling with the actual recognition of these animals:

    Above are all 8 of the animal cards you will be awarded once you have seen them.

    Alien Figure 1:

    Above is the alien human like figure on the corner left roof, there are several locations around the map this is near the home location. Once you have binoculars you can also look around and spot then travel towards them.

    Dolphin 2:

    These will follow you majority of your time when in boat.

    Pelican 3:

    Found around buildings in clusters of 2-5.

    Large Spurting Whale 4:

    Can be found on the out skirts of the map on the boundary as this is further out to sea.

    Flying Fish 5:

    These look like little flying birds that are in groups of 7-10 they jump in and out of water in and around your boat area. They can also be found around buildings near pelicans, these are quite popular so don’t worry on this one.

    Sting Ray 6:

    Killer Shark 7:

    Whale 8:

    In and around the home area very frequently so do not worry on this one either.

    As soon as you have seen your 8th animal and postcard pops up at base of screen.

    There it goes pop achievement unlocked!

    Happy Hunting
