Which One of Them is Biscuit, Anyway?

By looking directly at each of these Mooncalf creatures, you will see the name of the highlighted Mooncalf at the top of the screen. It’s recommended that you use the Disillusionment spell so that you are invisible to them because they can get startled and start running away from you, and then… well… good luck finding which one of them is called Biscuit. In order to capture Biscuit, you need the famous Nab Sack. Levioso is also a spell to consider when trying to catch this Mooncalf, it should be of great assistance to you I hope.
