The animals in this land are sick. Sick in the body and sick in the mind. I have never seen such a sickness before. Only one thing can be done. We survivors must prepare for the end, and delay its arrival as long as we can.
The term Animals is used in certain modifiers referring to beasts as a category of monsters:

When encountering a beast, Einhar will appear to assist the player and will throw nets at beasts with low health to capture them. Captured beasts are recorded in the Bestiary.
Types of beasts
Beasts with one Bestiary mod have a yellow icon on the minimap. Beasts with two Bestiary mods have a red icon on the minimap. Red beasts have significantly higher life and spawns monsters periodically.
There are also four Spirit Beasts which are avatars of the animalistic Ezomyte gods called the First Ones. These beasts must be by opening a portal to their respective domains through the blood altar by sacrificing a specific "portal beast". Each Spirit Beast drops an exclusive set of four themed unique armours and can also be sacrificed in order to beastcraft Aspect Skills onto items.
The mechanics differ from those in the Bestiary league. Once a beast drops below 50% life, Einhar will appear in the zone to assist in the hunt. Einhar can attack at a range, fire a barrage of crossbow shots or throw an explosive on a cooldown, and provides an aura that grants life leech and life gain on hit. He will throw nets at beasts that are low on health to capture them. The instance owner always gets the beast, regardless how far they are. Other party members within a 250 unit radius (25 metres) or roughly two screens have a chance of obtaining a beast, based on the item quantity bonus for party play. Einhar leaves once all the beasts are captured, unless the Lone Hunter Atlas passive is allocated.
Beasts can also be found in a Beast node in the Azurite Mine. These beast can be killed, but will get added to your Menagerie once defeated.

Beastcrafting is a method of crafting by sacrificing beasts to the blood altar in the Menagerie. Beastcrafting requires four beasts to be sacrificed, with most of them requiring a specific Red Beast and three other beasts. When beastcrafting, the four beasts chosen are released into the arena surrounding the blood altar and must be killed to complete the recipe. If the player dies during the attempt, the recipe fails and the beasts are lost.
In the Bestiary league, players had to capture beasts themselves using nets. Some resurrected or undead versions of beasts (e.g. Bone Rhoas) did not not count as beasts, and therefore could not be captured. However, interestingly, Skeletal Beasts like Tyrannursus Maximus and The Great White Bones could be captured.
