The Legendary Sun Gator is a species of animal found in Red Dead Online.


This alligator has been spotted by residents in Lakay. It has a distinctive orange coloring which can be easy to spot among the green and brown of the bayou.[1] It is patient and cunning, biding its time before it takes down prey. It is rarely seen outside early hours of the morning and favors heavy fog and mist.


It has a higher chance of spawning between 6am and 9am during foggy weather.

The Gator's skin is tough, so the player needs to shoot it several times to sedate it.


After hunting and killing the gator, the player can sell the pelt to Gus Macmillan and he will craft it into garments.
