    The key here is to kill animal species. It's been proved that the four legendary animals are NOT required for this. Also, you do not need to skin the animals, just kill them. I've taken out domesticated animals and put them in a separate group at the bottom.

    To find out what you have killed, press Start > Stats > Misc

    List:
    Armadillo
    Bear -Tanners Reach
    Beaver - Northeast of the word Cochinay along the river. Also look south of Tall Trees in Bear claw camp (you have to zoom in real close to see the name, below Manzanita post).
    Bighorn Sheep - Between Rattlesnake Hollw and Pleasance House
    Boar - Can be found in pens at the most Nothern point on the map, in the snow mountains near an abandoned fort there.
    Bobcat - Southwest Mexico, go to the bottom left corner of the map; around Escalera and Nosalida. Also found in the Northeastern part of the Great Plains.
    Buffalo - Great Plains
    Cougar - Southwest of Fort Mercer, Southeast of Repentance Rock
    Coyote
    Crow
    Deer/Buck
    Duck - South of Gaptooth Breach, west of the Scratching Post along the water line. Also found around Lake Don Julio.
    Eagle - Tall Trees
    Elk - Tall Trees
    Fox - Tall Trees and Great Plains
    Hawk
    Horse - Wild
    Owl
    Rabbit
    Raccoon - Must hunt at night as they are nocturnal, seen around Armadillo and packs in the Great Plains.
    Seagull - Near Blackwater, you can hear its distinctive sound
    Skunks - Around Armadillo
    Snake - Found all over, be sure to listen for the rattle sound.
    Songbird
    Vulture - Kill something and they appear flying over the dead animal
    Wolf

    Domesticated Animals (not needed for the achievement)
    Chicken - MacFarlane's Farm
    Cow
    Dog - At least one in every town
    Donkey - Random mexicans riding donkeys
    Pig
    Goat - Mexican towns
    Horse - Domesticated

    The related article on the Red Dead Wiki tells you all about the animals you need to kill and where to find them: http://reddead.wikia.com/wiki/Unnatural_Selection

    To figure out which animals you have yet to kill, go to the start menu, then Stats, and under Miscellaneous you will find how many of each species you have killed. Those you have not killed yet will not be listed, so compare that list with the list on the wiki article above to find out which animals you have left to find towards your 20 G for Unnatural Selection.
