    ~Intro...
    
    This guide is for the sole use for finding all the food products. If
    you obtain all of them, you will get an item after the game's end. 
    
    In other words, to get the Markhor Rank. This will grant you to use 
    of the "EZ Gun" only until resent discovery, only able to get on 
    Very Easy. This gun is very cheap, but is needed if you want a near
    completed file. For obvious reason, I don't think you can get this
    gun like this on Very Easy... While going for the Markhor Rank, 
    finding only every food item will get you the rank, thus know where
    the food is laying is the most important part.
    
    While going for this Rank, you may use special items, such as the
    infinity face paint.
    
    In this FAQ, I WILL NOT use the game names for areas, there is a very
    good reason for this. When I was hunting for items or secrets, I found
    it easier to just know "The area after/before you fight so-and-so" as
    opposed to some, hard to remember, Russian area.
    
    But here is one main tip... When searching for animals that I list, 
    with multiple locations and types (Snake should be the only real 
    problem), kill everything you see and pick it up. This will be the 
    most surefire way to not miss anything.
    
    The second term is what they are label while chilling in a ration. 
    Like The King Cobra is "Snake A".

    ~Snakes
    Snakes are the most common and usually the easest to find... the only 
    problem is -- They also have the biggest group. Besides the Tree 
    snakes, the state of matter snakes, and the fat snake, you really
    can't tell which one you might get until you pick it up. Most of 
    them look the same and you should pick them up for a safe measure.
    
    King Cobra (Snake A)
    This is a basic snake you can find laying on the ground. It is gray
    in color. You can find this snake during the first mission... the 
    Virtuous Mission. The place that I have always found this snake was
    in third area, where you first find guards. Go to the left of the exit
    in the area with tall grass. You should be able to find one there. If
    by chance I'm wrong, you could always waste every snake you come by, 
    you should find it. By the way, you can get this before the second 
    mission, Snake Eater." So if you can't find one where I mention, make
    use of your motion sensor, and you should be good.
    
    Taiwanese Cobra (Snake B)
    Before I even begin, I might mix this up with the Thai Cobra... 
    either way, they are both pretty close to each other, so it shouldn't
    matter. Any ways, this snake should be caught in the caves after the
    Ocelot fight. I've found this guy crawling in the hole to the right of 
    the start. While you are crawling through it, you can hardly miss this
    snake... you also must crawl though it.
    
    Thai Cobra (Snake C)
    If my memory serves me correctly, you can find this snake in the cave
    path area right after The Pain fight. It should be the first snake you
    find there. It is a redish color.
    
    Coral Snake (Snake D)
    This is a redish snake. You can easily find this in the swamp area 
    after the GRU fight in the Snake Eater mission. There should be two of
    them before you even go into croc infested waters.
    
    Milk Snake (Snake E)
    Look at the where the coral snakes are... these are in the same area.
    There is also about two of them in the same spot. The best way two get
    both is just to kill all the snakes in the area, you should get them 
    both.
    
    Green Tree Python (Snake F)
    This can be found in two areas with ease. In the first areas of the 
    snake eater mission, you can find a few of these in the trees. This
    can be before or after the cutscene (although I would just kill the
    one hanging from the tree RIGHT before the cutscene where The Boss
    rapes you with CQC). The second area where this is easily spotted
    is with the final battle WITH The Boss. They are the only snakes in
    the trees in this area. I would seriously avoid getting them later 
    in the game...
    
    Giant Anaconda (Snake G)
    This snake can be found in the Virtuous mission. It memory serves me
    correctly, you can get this just a little north of the tree that 
    holds your back pack. I also remember finding one in the caves.
    One thing to remember, these look just like the Reticulated Python...
    which is bad since they are the most common snake in the game.
    
    Reticulated Python (Snake H)
    Do I even need to help you find of these? No, they are everywhere,
    including right to the left of the beginning drop point in the 
    Virtuous mission.
    
    Snake Liquid (Snake I)
    This snake can be found next to a log during The Boss fight. 
    This is a one of a kind Snake, so get it! Make sure to hurry up and
    find as you have a time limit. If you need help actually finding it,
    use stun grenades during The Boss fight... but crawling with a knife 
    is safer. Oh, and they are white like the flowers.
    
    Snake Solid (Snake J)
    Same as above, only next to another log.
    
    Snake Solidus (Snake K)
    Same as above, only next to another log. Remember, there are only
    three logs.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Mushrooms
    Mushrooms are beyond the hardest things to hunt for... simply because
    they don't die once you lobe a stun grenade nor appear on any type of
    Radar device. There is one thing you can do... Thermal Goggles! Trust
    me, they don't do nothing!
    
    Russian Oyster (Mushroom A)
    From the VERY beginning of the Virtuous Mission, go left to the log. 
    It should be on it. You probably want to shoot it.
    
    Ural Luminescent (Mushroom B)
    From the second forest area after leaving through the warehouse (From
    after getting the Key from the Drunk Granin and The Fear fight). Or 
    in different terms, right before The End fight. Any ways, right when
    you enter this area, go all the way to the left. You will see ground 
    that looks like that sinking mud... but it's really not. Any ways, 
    you should find a tree in this area with them on the side. Keep in
    mind these mushrooms look like barnacles.
    
    Siberian Ink Cap (Mushroom C)
    This is the most common shroom. You can find this in various places,
    like next to a tree after that wooden bridge, or in the final parts
    of the game while guiding Eva.
    
    Fly Agaric (Mushroom D)
    During the battle with The Fear, you can easily find this mushy 
    while using the Thermal Goggles.
    
    Russian Glow Cap (Mushroom E)
    This can be found in the cave, before and after The pain, during the
    battle with The Fury, and after meeting up with Eva behind the water
    fall. This should be hard to find, they are freaking green!
    
    Spatsa (Mushroom F)
    This is in the area RIGHT after the warehouse. If you recall my 
    directions for finding the Ural Luminescent, this area is right
    before that. Any ways, use your Thermal Goggles to find it next
    to one of the very first tree. It is a tall and single standing
    mushroom.
    
    Baikal Scaly Tooth (Mushroom G)
    This is in the same area as the Spatsa. This can be found on trees a
    little farther up from hill. It is a mushroom with many caps. Make
    sure you use your Thermal Goggles.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Frogs
    Frogs are small creatures, so you really have to look for them. There 
    is a good thing about them... most of the time, if you see one, there
    are many more in the same area.
    
    Otton Frog (Frog A)
    This frog can be found in many places, but the best place is probably 
    at the beginning of the Snake Eater mission. They are within Radar 
    range from the starting point... just look in the grass. They are a
    light brownish color.
    
    Tree Frog (Frog B)
    You can find a bunch of these frogs right in the beginning of the 
    second area of the Virtuous Mission were all the crocs are. They are 
    all in the tall blades of grass not far from the beginning of the area.
    If you have a radar device, you can easily spot them where there is a 
    cluster. If you missed them in this area, you can also get them in the
    Swamp land after the GRU fight. They will skim on the top pf the water.
    Just make sure you watch out for Crocs!
    
    Poison Dart Frog (Frog C)
    These are very small frogs found during the fight with The Fear. They
    are very tiny, but there are many of them. Use a grenade to get them 
    if you are lazy.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Birds
    Birds, for the most part, are hard to catch. Other than the Rumped
    Vulture, your best bet is to shoot them. If you miss or get too close
    they will fly away. If this happens, either move on to another bird
    location, or leave and reenter the same area for a second shot.
    
    Parrot (Bird A)
    This is The End's parrot. To get this bird, you must actually be
    fighting The End. I've always found him on top of the ammo shed
    to the left of the starting area in this fight. He should be on the
    edge and he will fall off once killed. The End will hate you for this.
    
    White-Rumped Vulture (Bird B)
    This bird is found flying high in the desert/mountain areas of the
    game, right after "Beating the Ladder" (The big Ladder after The
    End fight). Any ways, you can either snipe it with a rifle while 
    airborne, or kill a guard and wait for it to scavenge his remains.
    
    Red Avadavat (Bird C)
    This bird can be found after leaving the lab before The Fear fight.
    First off, I left though the side door after I got the key from 
    Granin. Now in the FIRST blades of grass, it will be in it. They are
    very small and hard to spot. You don't have to come out of this door,
    it's just easier this way if you miss, so you don't have to travel 
    too far to make it reappear. When trying to actually kill it, use 
    your Thermal goggles while stalking close to it. Once you can actually
    see it, snipe it. Another method of getting this bird is when in the 
    cell, let Johnny toss you one, it takes a while.
    
    Magpie (Bird D)
    This bird can be found in the first area in the Virtuous Mission with 
    guards. I recommend killing all the guard first then picking up the
    Sniper Rifle to the far right of the map. If you would rather no
    enemies at all, you can also get it in the area before that with the
    crocs. They should be in the area where I mention a bunch of Green
    Frogs above this. If you have a patriot, you should go wild while
    in a crawling position.
    
    Sunda Whistling Thrush (Bird E)
    This bird can be found on top of the building or red steel bars in
    the last area of the Virtuous Mission (where you first meet Ocelot)
    You should snipe them off the steel bars, or you can climb up the
    ladder on the side to get a close shot at the ones on the building.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Fishes
    These are the fish of the game... nothing special about them other than
    they are in water. Use stun grenades in the river or The Pain area for
    fun results!
    
    Bigeye Trevally (Fish A)
    This is the smallest fish. This little guy can be found in the river 
    after The Pain fight. Just toss a grenade if you can't find them, you
    will surely get at least one caught this way.
    
    Maroon Shark (Fish B)
    This fish can be found in during The Pain fight and after it. It is a 
    pointy fish and shouldn't give you a problem.
    
    Arowana (Fish C)
    This is a big fish also found among all the other Fish. You know when
    you kill on of these, they give you two rations of fish!
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Fruits
    Fruits are found in tree and sometimes on the ground. Only looking up
    while using the Thermal Goggles will help you.
    
    Yabloko Moloko (Fruit A)
    This is a red fruit found in the beginning of the Virtuous Mission. You
    can find some hanging in trees in the area where you first fight guards.
    If you run all the way strait from the start, you will see some.
    
    Russian False Mango (Fruit B)
    Right after The Pain fight, while in the little cave/canyon, you will
    see two yellow fruits. Stab them off the ground and pick them up. You
    really can't miss these.
    
    Golova (Fruit C)
    These are pair like fruits... that come in pairs! When in a tree, they
    look like a sack of yellow sagging nuts. I'm pretty sure you can find 
    these in the same area you first find the Yabloko Moloko... or in the
    same area as the Ural Luminescent Mushroom as mentioned above. You 
    really have to look up during this area. Use Thermal goggles.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Packaged Foods
    These are probably the only foods in this game you would like to enjoy 
    eating.
    
    *PLEASE NOTE*
    These have been confirmed by a few people from Emails and the board
    that these do not count... but since I have them written down, no 
    point passing them up!
    
    In other words, you do not need these to get the EZ Gun.
    
    Calorie Mate 
    You start with this, put just in case it doesn't count toward your 
    completion, you can find these in various food storage places. Like
    the one in the Warehouse before the area where you fight The Fear.
    
    Instant Noodles 
    These can be found in many places, must of the time, at the same place
    as the Calorie Mates. If you can't find any, Eva will give you some or
    you can find some in the Sewers before the fight with The Sorrow
    
    Russian Ration  
    These can be found in places just like the other items. But some more 
    unique places include: Up from the start when you are walking with Eva
    or from sometimes shaking/holding up guards.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Miscellaneous
    These are food items that aren't grouped together... IE no A, B, or C.
    
    Vampire Bat 
    These are found everywhere and by big numbers! You can first find 
    these in the caves before The Pain fight. When ever you see them, toss
    a stun grenade, you will like the outcome.
    
    Kenyan Mangrove Crab 
    These are small crabs... You can find them in the cave before The Pain,
    in the forest's river during The End, or after the "fight" with The
    Sorrow. If you try and find them in the cave, use Thermal Goggles. You
    won't have to look far.
    
    Indian Gavial 
    These are the large reptiles. I say reptiles because crocs and
    alligators have different teeth and jaw patterns. Either way, they are
    large and can be found as soon as the first swamp in the second area of
    the Virtuous Mission. Remember, stab for the head!
    
    Markhor 
    These are Goat like animals. They aren't hard to miss, and you will
    probably kill one of these by mistake if you are sniping The End with 
    Thermal Goggles on. You can also find one right where you begin after
    the fight with The Sorrow. Attack them from the front if you use a
    knife.
    
    Baltic Hornet's Nest 
    Just like the name implies, it is a nest. The best place to get one of 
    these puppies is right before the bridge in the Virtuous Mission. Just
    knock it down with a gun, and the guard will get chased by the bees...
    Then pick it up before you cross the bridge, it's hard to miss. Also
    try the Ocelot fight or the first croc swamp. If you throw one out 
    during The Pain fight, you will get "The Pain Hornet's Nest." It will
    absorb some of his attacks and taste better... This special form of the
    nest isn't needed.
    
    European Rabbit 
    This is a cute little bunny. The easiest place to find out of these is
    during The End fight.
    
    Rat 
    If you seriously need a good place to eat on of these, you haven't hid
    too much. Under the room where Sokolov is hidden is the first place you
    can get a rat.
    
    Emperor Scorpion 
    These are found everywhere on the desert mountain base. If you can't 
    find one there, wait till after the cut scene with Eva, there should
    be on right on the floor in that little hut.
    
    Cobalt Blue Tarantula 
    This is the only spider in the game. This can be found in the prison 
    area of the Gorki Lab, on the docks, or on the far wall before you
    climb up the large ladder after The End.
    
    Japanese Flying Squirrel 
    This is a hard one to find. In the very beginning of the Snake Eater 
    mission, you can see them climbing up a tree. I recommend using your
    favorite radar device to help kill everything that blinks... or blips. 
    Just remember, if you can't go all the way to the beginning of the 
    mission, you went too far.
    
    Tsuchinoko 
    This is a fat snake... but you can't actually find one without the 
    use of a mouse trap. To get this snake, you first need a mouse trap.
    Now, after you kill The Fear, start planting traps in the middle area.
    I did this an easy way by having the Infinity Face Paint and placing 
    a ton of them... but if you don't have that, you can pick them up like
    a claymore. Any ways, leave the area and come back, if you place three 
    down in the middle, you should get one of them. If not, try again.
    
    Vine Melon 
    This is a green veggie found hanging on vines. You can easily get
    these in the area right after the Warehouse before The End or in 
    the Forest right after The Sorrow.
    
    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]
    
    ~Medi Plants
    Upon resent discovery, these are needed to get The Markhor Rank. These
    are plants, that can't be stored in your inventory... but turn into 
    "Cure" items. I'm sure you've seen them around if you played around 
    with grenades.
    
    Any ways, they don't have names, but all of them can be found through
    the game. 
    
    The easiest place to find all of these would be in the area where I 
    first mention the Spatsa atfer that warehouse. All of these plants are
    here. Just make sure you equip your termals as some of them blend in
    very well and look like grass. 
    
    Another place would be in one of the rooms on the first floor of the
    Gorki lab. They are in pots on the long desk.
    
    Styptic Plant
    The first one I've found was in the beginning of the Snake Eater 
    mission, it's in front of the tree right where you start. It looks 
    like grass.
    
    Cold Medicine Plant
    I also found this in the same area as the Styptic Plant... go a little
    ahead and you will see a bush with purplish berries between two large
    areas of tall grass.
    
    Disinfectant Plant
    In the same are as the above two, you can find one of these next to a
    tree next to the logs. It looks likt the styptic plant (tall bunch of
    grass) with white specs.
    
    Splint Plant
    This looks just like the Disinfectant Plant, only with purple specs.
    The closest spot I've found this is in the beginning of the Virtuous
    Mission... only while in the Snake Eater mission. This means travel
    all the way back to "The Tree." It's a little bit in front of it to
    the right. The Tree is the one with your back pack earlier on in the
    V mission.

    ~Locations
    This was going to be like the top part, but I figured it would be 
    unneeded... so I decided to tell you where the area is or describe it.
    
    Dremuchij East - This is the first area of Snake Eater
    
    Dremuchij North - The second area of Snake Eater. This area has the
    very large drop at the beginning, where you cannot return from.
    
    Dremuchij Swampland - This is the area from the Viruous Mission that
    contains the death trap mud and crocs. You must back track to reach it
    in the Snake Eater Mission.
    
    Dremuchij South - Just like the swamp, you must back track. This is
    the area you start in the Viruous mission.
    
    Dolinovodno - The area with the long wooden bridge.
    
    Rassvet - The area where you first fight the GRU, where you meet 
    Ocelot twice, and first recuse Sokolov. Get the Thermals here!
    This area changes... I couldn't seem to find any birds here during
    the Snake Eater Mission.
    
    Chyornyj Prud - The larger swamp infrested with fish and crocs.
    
    Bolshaya Past South - The first area with electric fences.
    
    Bolshaya Past Base - The area after the sotuh part with the building
    and helicopter.
    
    Bolshaya Past Crevice - The fight area against Ocelot.
    
    Chyomaya Peschera Cave Branch - The cave right after the Ocelot fight.
    
    Chyomaya Peschera Cave - The second cave and the area where you fight
    The Pain.
    
    Chyomaya Peschera Cave Entrance - The area after The Pain fight.
    
    Ponizovje South - This is the long river after the caves.
    
    Ponizovje West - The area west of the long river... this is the first
    spot you can get the SVD.
    
    Ponizovje Warehouse: Exterior - This is the area before the warehouse,
    the docks. It is the area where you can kill The End before he gets 
    wheeled in the doors.
    
    Ponizovje Warehouse - Kind of hard to not remember... the Warehouse
    after the docks.
    
    Graniny Gorki South - The area where you fight The Fear.
    
    Graniny Gorki Lab Exterior - The area outside of the lab, it has an
    electric fence guarding it.
    
    Graniny Gorky Lab 1F - This is the top floor of the lab.
    
    Graniny Gorky Lab B1 East - The right lower floor of the lab.
    
    Svyatogornyj South - This is the area right after leaving the ware-
    house though the newly unlocked door.
    
    Svyatogornyj West - This part is right after the South area... not
    really much else you can say.
    
    Svyatogornyj East - This area is mostly unheard of, as you must keep 
    going right to reach it while in the West.
    
    Sokrovenno South - The first screen during The End fight.
    
    Sokrovenno West - Part of the area you fight The End.
    
    Sokrovenno North - Part of the area you fight The End.
    
    Krasnogorje Tunnel - The area where you fight The Ladder.
    
    Krasnogorje Mountain Base - The first part of the desert mountain. 
    This part has no steep hills yet.
    
    Krasnogorje Mountainside - As the name suggests, this is the area 
    where you will be moving up the mountain.
    
    Krasnogorje Mountaintop - The top of the moutain. This area doesn't
    have as much climbing, but has trenches.
    
    Krasnogorje Mountaintop Ruins - This is the little shack you meet up
    with Eva at.
    
    Groznyj Grad Underground Tunnel - This is the whole section where you
    fight The Fury.
    
    Groznyj Grad 1F - This is the holding cell. All the food from here is
    given to you if you wait.
    
    Groznyj Grad Sewers - If you didn't know where this was, it is before
    The Sorrow fight.
    
    Tikhogomyj - The forest area after The Sorrow.
    
    Tikhogomyj: Behind Waterfall - This is the area where you meet up with
    Eva and get your stuff back.

    Zaozyorje North - The second part with Eva and the last part of the
    game without a boss.
    
    Rokovoj Bereg - The Boss fight.

    ~Tips
    
    +Before you get the Thermal Goggles, the Motion Detector or the Active 
    Sonar will help you find most animals. Of course this will not help you
    on Hard/Extreme.
    
    +The Thermal Goggles will help you find any food in this game, save 
    maybe a small animal in the grass. Any ways, these are beyond the best
    hunting device in the game. Even plants and mushrooms will stick out
    brightly. Make sure you get this item the earliest... this is in the 
    locker after the GRU fight in the room Sokolov was first found in.
    
    +Stun Grenades are a good choice. Ever didn't want to wade through
    fish? Even feel bats are hard to kill? Ever just want to wipe out
    the wildlife in thick grass? Well, pop one of these off in an area
    with a bunch of blipping dots on your Radar to find all the wild
    life nicely packed into floating rations!
    
    +Using the Sniper rifle is a good way to tame birds.
    
    +The Patriot will surefice until a good amount of Stun Grenades are
    found, just make sure you lay on your belly.
    
    +If you are going for the rank, you don't need to eat anything, but
    you should... why? Because you can keep track of everything you eat
    in the cure menu. Just hit right or left when looking at your injury
    list. Remember, 44 things should show up.
    
    +Try not to die... because you have to recatch the things you caught
    after a checkpoint.
    
    +Before moving on to a "point of no return," make sure you get every
    thing that previous area as to offer, even if they aren't one time
    meals. These areas are:
    
    -Before talking to Sokolov (1)
    -The Drop at the beginning of Snake Eater (2)
    -Before the Ocelot Fight (3)
    -The little drop at the start of the desert base after the ladder (4)
    -Before The Fury (5)
    -Before Torture (6) (Which doesn't effect anything)
    -Before The Sorrow (7) 
    -Before climbing the ladder behind the water fall (8)
    -Before planting C3 (9) (Which is almost the same as #6)
    -Before The Boss (10)
    -After The Boss (11)
    
    This is important as some animals can't be caught after certain areas.
    The End's Parrot is also a one time catch.
    
    +Here is a copy and paste list of all the animals. Use this if you want
    to cross off or delete caught animals. I also have a the point at which 
    you can't get the animal any more. Some of the animals do appear
    later... but you should get them before this point any ways... since 
    it's safer... and I told you to :D

    These are to the best of my knowledge... I'm am truly sorry if I
    screwed up and you have to start your game over because of it. To
    avoid this outcome, do what I did. Create a save before EACH of 
    these "Points of no returns."
    
    +If you want piss people off, sing this really loud in their ear:
    What a thrill,
    With darkness and silence through the night,
    What a thrill,
    I'm searching and I'll melt into you,
    What a fear in my heart,
    But you're so supreme,
    I give my life,
    Not for honor, but for you, 
    In my time, there'll be no one else,
    Crime, it's the way I fly to you, 
    I'm still in a dream, Snake Eater.
    
    Someday you go through the rain, 
    Someday you feed on a tree frog,
    It's ordeal, the trial to survive,
    For the day we see new light,
    I give my life,
    Not for honor, but for you,
    In my time, there'll be no one else,
    Crime, it's the way I fly to you, 
    I'm still in a dream, Snake Eater,
    I'm still in a dream, Snake Eater.

    ~Ending...
    If you have a question, feel free to ask me about it on the message
    board, I'm sure to be there (When new MGS games are released
    in the -->States<--, contact me somehow on the most recent board of 
    it). You may also Instant message me at IWBDK on aim. My mail is also 
    iwbdk@hotmail.com Oh yeah, Please rate :)
    
    If you've found another location for an animal, feel free to mail it
    to me... But not a general one, like a rat location.
    
    Also, do not Email me the names of the areas in Russian without 
    describing them. I do not care for the names that much... this is the
    point of the FAQ... To find the general locations without thinking
    too hard.
    
    Do Email if I made a non-typo mistake.
    
    DO NOT EMAIL ME ON THE ****ING PARROT. I heard she might change
    locations on different difficulties... the point remians, look for it
    during The End fight.
