Tracking down a shiny beast is the same process as finding a regular one. You need to visit the various lairs throughout Hogwarts and catch the animals at that location. You might not notice that a beast is shiny because it only looks slightly different. However, when you bring them back to the Vivarium, they will have a distinct star sign next to their name when you examine the beast.

This means they’re at least two types of beasts you can find throughout Hogwarts Legacy. There will be a standard version of these creatures and a shiny version. If you’re looking to collect each kind, rotating between the various lairs throughout Hogwarts and progressing through the story will unlock new areas for you to visit.
