Tsuchinoko animal and Infinite Face Paint
A mousetrap is required for this trick. While you are fighting Ocelot, notice that there is a tree which is cut off with branches sticking out the side that you can also climb. Remember this tree and what it looks like.
Then, go to Graniny Gorki South (immediately after the Ponizovje Warehouse). Graniny Gorki South is a large area filled with trees. Find it that tree in the north, if you are coming from the Ponizovje Warehouse exit. When you find it, there should be a lot of bushes nearby. Take your mousetrap and lay it down in the bushes, mostly near that tree though.
Place it about an inch of screen length away from that tree. Lay it down and look at the ground. If done correctly, you should see a rabbit hit the mousetrap first. Lay down on the floor and crawl to pick up your mousetrap again (like a claymore mine), and get the animal as well. Then, get up, and put your mousetrap down again. It does not have to be in the exact location, but close enough.
Then, instead of looking down, run around the forest until you hear the noise of a captured animal. Run back. Pick up the animal, and it should be a snake. Keep repeating this process until you get the Tsuchinoko. There should be a rabbit, two snakes, a squirrel, another snake, another squirrel, then the Tsuchinoko. Dispose of all of them or eat them to fit the Tsuchinoko, because they are alive and take up space.
When you retrieve it, do not look in your food items area. Call Major Zero immediately. He will tell you information that you may need to know. Keep it alive in the cage (do not eat it). If you keep it alive through the entire game, when everything is completed and your ranking appears at the end, you should notice that you now have the Infinite Face Paint
Note: Use the following trick to keep the Tsuchinoko when you lose the food when Snake gets captured at Groznyj Grad. When you find EVA at Tikhogornyj, behind Waterfall area she will give you your backpack, Equip your MK22. Notice that in your food Items, you do not have the Tsuchinoko. This is why you must hurry and go back out of the waterfall.
When your out of the waterfall, stay on the trail that you came out of from the waterfall (on the right side of the river). Follow it down till you see the Tsuchinoko squirming on the floor. Quickly shoot it with the MK22. Grab it and make sure that it is in a cage and still alive. Take it through the rest of the game alive without eating it, and you will get the Infinite Face Paint.
