One should keep in mind that the climate/environment descriptions give the primary area locations for the creatures. These are the types of areas in which the creatures are found to live and thrive in their world. Creatures will often be found outside these "primary" areas if the climate and environment are not too radically different. And remember, these are only guidelines.

  • Warm temperate
  • Warm and dry (semi-arid)
  • Mild temperate
  • Cool temperate
  • Cool and dry
  • Cold temperate
  • Cold and dry
