Sun Gator RDR2

Sun Gator in RDR2 is one of the legendary animals you can shoot or take a sample from in the game. Their skin is dark orange, so it’s not too difficult to notice in the brush of the bayou. However, you have to keep in mind that they are most commonly spotted in the early hours of the morning. Also, you want it to be foggy or rainy. Whether you skin it or take a sample from it, you’ll get 50% extra XP and money until August 10th. Gus will make you a special Sun Coat from its skin. Also, you’ll get a special colorway of the Helsby Gloves in your Offers and Rewards within 48 hours.

Legendary Teca Gator

The Legendary Teca Gator in Red Dead Online is one of the newly-added animals. It’s black, and appears only at night (although, we found one at 4PM, so take that for what it’s worth). Also, it tends to spawn more often in stormy or rainy weather. That makes it very dangerous and hard-to-spot in the dark waters. Like with the Sun Gator, skinning or taking a sample from the Teca Gator grants you 50% extra XP and more money up to August 10th, and yes, Gus can make a Teca Coat from its hide. Plus, you’ll get a special colorway of the O’Quinn Hat, also within 48 hours, under Offers and Rewards.

Legendary Alligator RDR2 Location

There are two Legendary Alligator locations, depending on which one you’re after. The Teca Gator spawns near the Lannahechee River, southwest of Saint Denis. And, that’s exactly where we found it. To be more precise, we found it south of Caliga Hall and east of Bolger Glade. Its description does say that it only appears at night, but again, we found it at 4PM in-game, so, there you have it. Below, you’ll find the general area where the Teca Gator spawns, and the exact location where we found it.

As for the Legendary Sun Gator location, the description tells you that the residents of Lakay have spotted it. What that tells us is that it probably spawns in and around Lagras. Well, that’s exactly where you can find it (although, there are some reports that it can also appear around the Kamassa River, but Lagras is the safe bet). Specifically, you can look around the “peninsula” in the north of the lake, as demonstrated on the map below.
