    Apologies if you're here from the notifications this wasn't how I wanted to break the internet.
    I just saved an edit and its gone a bit mad...

    Credit to Mr Funman for this, I'm just putting it in a more visible place

    "Super easy way to get this achievement is to use the bed in Crombo's Camp in Scorched Gorge to rest until 5am. Spin around and check the windmills to see if the Snaxsquatch has spawned - it'll be super obvious when he has, but if not, rest again. I got him to appear first try here."

    Been confirmed by several people

    Additionally, as MehGyver says, you can get this during the final mission.
    I won't spoil it, but so long as you don't rush forward, you will have several opportunities to get the scan

    matsze5am didn't work for me, tried it multiple times. I had to sleep until midnight, then the Snaxsquatch appeared.
    So my advice would be, sleep at the camp at Scorched Gorge multiple different times of the day. In the end the Snaxsquatch will appear.

    MehGyverYou can naturally come across the Snaxsquatch during the final quest sequence. If you go slow enough, you have plenty of time to snag a snapshot. No need to nap and pray.

    I randomly saw Snaxsquatch while timing the game to find Baja Tachroach in the Simmering Springs. He freaked me out, and so I quickly snagged a photo/scan. I didn't even know this was an achievement yet.

    He was up on the ledge amongst the trees to the left once warping into the area. There's a round-about in that corner with a Kweeble circling the bushes (not near the beach). Opposite the side where the Buggy Ball is first found.

    Not really sure this helps anyone. I'm just posting because I never saw Snaxsquatch the whole game and I think I'm close to finishing. Just trying to help.
