Wildlife is crucial to survival in Stranded Deep. Stranded Deep is populated across all biomes with many kinds of natural fauna.
If a creature is killed it will not respawn and will remain dead for its specific biome.
Hostile creatures actively seek you out and have the ability to injure you. Neutral creatures can injure you if you tread on them or may be toxic when eaten regardless of if they are properly cooked, but do not stalk or attack you on their own. Passive creatures do not harm you in the wild, but may cause illness if eaten raw.
