~ Feeding and Companion Guide ~

Critter Feeding

Squirrels: Don’t require any method, just approach and interact to feed them

Rabbits: Basically a game of chase, get close to them and they will run away. This method requires you to do this three times before you can interact with and feed them.

Sea Turtles: Once you approach the sea turtle, they will quickly hide inside their shell. If you wait a while (approx 8 secs) they will pop back out and allow you to interact and feed them.

Crocodiles: One of the toughest methods out of them all, once you get a certain distance away from the crocodile it will stand upright and look around. After it has done this, you want to wait until they drop back down to the ground. This then allows you to (sometimes, depending if the game likes you or not) move closer to the crocodile. Rinse and repeat until you are able to interact with the crocodile to feed it.

(Once you practise with timing, you can end up doing this within 2-3 movements)

Raccoon: The exact same method as the crocodile, get close and wait for them to stand upright, then wait for them to drop back down to move closer to them to feed them.

Sunbirds: The exact same method as the squirrel, just approaching them will allow you to feed them.

Foxes: The exact same method as the rabbit, another chase sequence where after the third one you should be able to interact with and feed them.

Ravens: Unknown

When it comes to making these critters your companions, you have to feed them their favourite food 2-3 times in a row. Breaking from this streak will reduce the chances of becoming a companion
