Squirrels are rodents with long teeth and look like wild critters. They mostly like to eat a mixture of nuts, corn, leaves, bark, and other varieties of similar diets. You can find the squirrels in the Plaza. As mentioned, squirrels like eating fruits and nuts, but peanuts are their favorite food.

So if you want to befriend a squirrel, make sure you bring a lot of peanuts. Squirrels come straight to you when they feel hungry. Simply feed them with nuts and fruits to get the rewards. And if you wish to have them as companions, then provide them with their favorite food.

Furthermore, squirrels will never try to run away because of their docile nature, so you can easily find them. Squirrels are very loving and are not frightened of people. This makes it easier to approach them. However, Squirrels are unpredictable critters with surprising speed and strength for their size. If you find a squirrel staring at you, it means that it is looking forward to what you will do. Lastly, they have sharp claws, which makes for a poor companion for human beings.


The availability of squirrel variants depends on the day. The game has many squirrel variants based on their physical appearance. You can distinguish the squirrel variants by their color, which can be red, grey, white, black, and classic. Black squirrels are only found on Tuesday.

Furthermore, Rabbits take on their masters as their role models and learn from them. You can teach them manners and etiquette on how to behave in from of others. Moreover, be careful when approaching them as they run into the wilderness and when they see someone coming toward them.

Turtles are adorable little creatures that you can find around the beach. They can either be on land or underwater, hence their nickname marine turtles. They have a hard shell around their body that protects them from harmful things and much more.

Completing the quest allows you to gain the turtles’ trust and befriend them. Training them is easy as turtles learn different actions with some training from their master.

Moreover, Turtles are harmless because of their shy and calm nature. However, capturing a turtle is not as easy a task as it looks. To unlock the turtles as your companions, you will have to feed them their favorite food. Turtles dribble at the sight of seaweed and will love you if you provide them some. If you don’t have seaweed, just look around the dazzle beach shore and find some seaweed shellfish to feed. Luckily, they quickly identify their keeper and know when to feed. Remember, they are very sensitive and don’t like noisy and lousy places.

Some of the young raccoons are friendly in nature with people. Raccoons look like round, fizzy critters with black mask covering their eyes. Moreover, you can feed the raccoons with their favorite food to get the rewards and unlock them as companions. Raccoons mostly eat meat and vegetables, but they love blueberries.

Moreover, they don’t interact with others as much as other animals. Raccoons are usually hungry, so you can always find them wandering around garbage bins looking for food.

Also you can rarely spot them during the day because of their habits. It is exceptionally challenging to tame these types of critters in the valley so consider yourself warned.


There are many variants of raccoons present based on their colors. The variants are white, black, red, blue, and classic color raccoons. White raccoons are present on Mondays only, while the Black and blue raccoons are primarily available on Tuesdays. All the other raccoons are available on both Mondays and Wednesdays.

Foxes are medium-sized critters with flattened skulls and triangular eyes. Most foxes are not dangerous and do not attack humans. They are part of the wild animal category but get along with humans quickly. Foxes are famous for their cleverness, among other critters. You can mainly find them on frozen heights.

Foxes are a bit challenging to capture. They are attracted mainly by their favorite foods like sturgeon or crab. To capture these types of critters, you must approach them in a particular way. They are little like hares and run away immediately when you move to get them. A male fox is known as a dog fox, and the female version of the fox is known as a vixen.

They have a fast, direct type of flight due to their short wings, which allows them to reach incredible speeds. Moreover, they are known as songbirds, among other critters.

Sunbirds are very loving and polite-natured critters. They quickly become friendly with humans, so don’t be hesitant to approach them.

These animals do not tug their heads under the wings and mostly prefer to sleep at night.

Lastly, the Diet of sunbirds mostly depends upon the nectar. The Bromeliad flower is the favorite flower for these critters. Catching sunbirds is difficult as they can just fly away. However, if you keep trying, you can capture them easily.


There are different variants of sunbirds that like different food with respect to their color. The first variant is the emerald sunbird that likes the green passion lily. The second variant is the orchid sunbird which prefers the orange houseleek.

Crocodiles are similar to raccoons in the ways they interact with others. They are incredibly anti-social and will run away as soon as you approach them. Even if they have the slightest hint that you are moving towards them, they will run away.

The only way to get close to them is to move towards them while looking at the ground. Use the time window to get close to them and feed them their favorite food, lobster. Once they munch down the Lobster, you will succeed in befriending them. If you are having trouble finding them, head straight to the Glade of Trust.


Ravens are very common and known for their intelligence. They don’t live in a specific place but rather keep wandering around. They have a very sharp memory and easily recognize other critters. Moreover, they mimic human voices with extreme precision. Ravens also showcase exceptional hunting skills.

Furthermore, ravens are brilliant animals and use their beaks to open objects. Ravens are viewed negatively as they are associated with loss and bad omens because of their black plumage. They are pretty vigorous and attack potential predators by flying at them. Ravens are hostile and showcase their anger when humans try to approach their nests. You can mainly find them in the forgotten land. Their behavior is unpredictable because of their mood swings. Hence tread carefully when approaching them.
