Squirrels in Disney Dreamlight Valley are docile rodents that enjoy a diet of nuts, corn, leaves, and bark. You can find them in the Plaza. To befriend squirrels, offer them peanuts, their favorite food. Hungry squirrels will approach you, and by feeding them nuts and fruits, you can earn rewards and potentially make them your companions.

Squirrels are not easily frightened by people and have a friendly disposition. This makes them approachable, but be aware that they can be unpredictable and surprisingly fast and strong for their size. If a squirrel stares at you, it’s curious about your actions. However, their sharp claws make them unsuitable as human companions.


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. Meanwhile, the classic variant of squirrels is readily available on Monday.

In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you can encounter Rabbits in the Peaceful Meadows. Interacting with Rabbits by feeding them or playing with them can lead to exciting rewards and the possibility of befriending them. Rabbits are known for their endearing nature and are popular throughout the valley.

Their favorite food is carrots, but they enjoy all vegetables. Playing with them and giving them lettuce or a carrot can attract their attention, as they seek interaction with their favorite individuals.

Rabbits tend to take their masters as role models and learn from them, so you can teach them manners and etiquette. However, approach them with care, as they tend to flee into the wilderness when someone approaches.

To feed Rabbits, you can obtain carrots from Goofy’s stall in the Peaceful Meadow. If you prefer, you can also grow carrots using seeds acquired after removing the Night Thomas Thorns.

Some young raccoons are friendly towards humans. They have a distinctive appearance with a round, fuzzy body and a black mask over their eyes. Feeding them their favorite food, like blueberries, can make them your companions.

Raccoons primarily eat meat and vegetables and are often seen near garbage bins searching for food. They are less social compared to other animals and are rarely active during the day, making them difficult to tame in the valley.

They like different flowers according to their unique taste. They mainly feed on grains and seeds; however, nuts are their favorite food to munch. Feed the sparrow nuts to get the rewards and unlock them as companions.


There are five colors of sparrows at your disposal. Variants of sparrows include golden, emerald, orchid, red, and turquoise colors.

Sunbirds are small, beautiful birds known for their captivating voices and thin, bristle-covered tongues. They have fast, direct flight due to their short wings and are categorized as songbirds.

These friendly birds can be found mainly in the Sunlit Plateau, where they seek food and sometimes live in pairs. To approach them successfully, consider their territorial behavior around flowers and feeding areas. They don’t tuck their heads under their wings and prefer nighttime sleep.

Sunbirds primarily feed on nectar, with the Bromeliad flower being their favorite. Capturing them can be challenging due to their flight abilities, but persistence can lead to success.


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.

Then we have the Golden sunbird, which enjoys the sunflower very much. The second last is the red sunbird that relishes the red bromeliad. Lastly, we have the turquoise sunbird, which likes the pink houseleek the most.  



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 highly intelligent and wander rather than staying in one place. They have sharp memory, recognize other creatures, and can mimic human voices accurately. Ravens are skilled hunters and use their beaks to open objects.

These birds are often associated with negativity due to their black plumage, but they are strong and will defend against potential threats. They can be hostile when their nests are approached, mainly found in the forgotten land. Their behavior can be unpredictable due to mood swings, so caution is advised.
