The Antlion's Den (アントリオンの洞窟, Antorion no Dōkutsu?), also known as Antlion's Cave, Antlion Cave, and Antlion, is a location in Final Fantasy IV and its sequel, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is the cave that contains the nest of the Antlion, which lays the Sand Pearl, the only known cure for Desert Fever, among its eggs.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Cecil, Rydia, and Edward traveled there to find a cure for Rosa's Desert Fever. They reached the Antlion's nest, and Edward tried to take the Sand Pearl from the usually tame Antlion. However, the Antlion became aggressive, and Cecil's party had to defeat it. They succeeded, and returned to Kaipo to heal Rosa.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Edward comes here to retrieve a Sand Pearl to heal Harley of her desert fever. After obtaining the Sand Pearl (with little effort), Edward returns to Kaipo to save Harley.
