Disney Dreamlight Valley provides plenty of friendships to develop with classic Disney and Pixar characters, but there are plenty of other creatures that crave your attention — or more specifically, your food. Scattered around each of the game’s biomes are creatures that you can feed to earn rewards like cosmetics and Dream Shards. Each creature is a bit different, however, as they all have a specific method to get them to sit still and a favorite food that will provide better rewards. Here is all this information in one place for you.
How to approach each creature and what to feed them
Squirrels are in the Square. Unlike some animals in later biomes, these little creatures will generally come up to you and wait for you to feed them when they’re hungry.
Favorite food: Peanuts
Rabbits are in Peaceful Meadow. When they are interested in the food, they will run away from you a bit and bounce up and down. Follow them and you’ll notice them running and doing it again. Keep following them and letting them bounce three times and they’ll eventually let you feed them at the fourth stop.
Favorite food: carrots
Sea turtles are found in Dazzle Beach. If they are hungry, you will be able to approach them, so they will hide inside their shell. Just stand there for a while until they come out and allow you to feed them.
Favorite food: Seaweed
Raccoons are in the Forest of Valor. These creatures move quickly and are difficult to keep up with, but when they are hungry, they will sit in one place and stare at you from afar. This is your chance to get closer to them quietly and slowly, only walking forward when they seem relaxed. If their head is up and they are looking around carefully, they will run away from you again. Eventually, you’ll get close enough to get the prompt to feed the little buggers.
Favorite food: Blueberries
Crocodiles are found in Glade of Trust. They run a lot, but like raccoons, they will stop and watch you from afar when they are hungry. When you see them standing still and looking carefully around you, that’s your cue. Move slowly towards them when their head is down, then stop once they start looking around again. Eventually, they will pop to the ground and wait for some food.
Favorite food: Lobster
The sunbirds are in Sunny Plateau. They flutter around the area quickly, but nothing special is required to approach them as long as you manage to track them.
Favorite food: Each color variant of the sunbird has its own unique favorite food. See below.
- Emerald Sunbird – Green Passion Lily
- Golden Sunbird – Sunflower
- Orchid Sunbird – Pink Bromeliad
- Red Sunbird – Red Bromeliad
- Turquoise Sunbird – Pink Houseleek
Foxes are in Frosted Heights. They are social creatures when they are hungry, so they will run to you and bark for you to follow them. Chase them wherever they take you long enough and eventually they’ll let you give them a little face.
Favorite food: White sturgeon
The crows are in the Forgotten Lands. Despite going up to the area and looking around, we haven’t actually encountered one yet.
Favorite food: We have not yet found this animal’s favorite food.
