    Confirmed: if you transfer a save file from the 360 version and already have all the animal orbs, then all you need to do is re-collect one of them from their original location and the achievement will pop. You must have the two xbox 360 DLC animal orbs- the dragon and the seal, which can be purchased from the insane store for 1100 gold each. You can grind the barbarian boss for 120 or so gold each time if needed.

    Er PaBlEtOrFirst I didnt know I could use my save from the 360, but anyway I got all the pets again including both at the insane store, I've got 28 animals and the achievement is not popping, I was playing with a friend and he got the achievement when he picked the last animal but when I picked mine the game lagged and the achievement is not unlocking...
    I've tried everything and nothing is working D;

    GunflameIf your unable to get the animal orbs after you have them all, just pick up any animal orb from the normal stages. Just worked for me

    ApolarcatJust in case anyone is wondering you do not need the golden whale from the insane mode church store. It’s really hard to beat thieves Forest so thank goodness.
