Wild Animals

scren shot

When you venture out into the mountain area you're bound to find some of the native animals. These animals will be in various areas of the mountain and initially will run away from you; the bear and to boar will actually attack you! If you work at it, the wild animals can become friendly.

The wild animals cannot become pets on your farm! The animals will always live in the mountain area no matter how nice you are towards them. They are "wild" animals, after all.

Animals appear when you enter a mountain area will vary depending on the season you're in, the current weather, and the time of day.

The wild animals you'll find are the Bear, Boar, Duck, Fox, Monkey, Mouse, Panda, Rabbit, Raccoon, Sparrow, and Weasel. All of the animals come in multiple colors (except for the Panda). You will also find Bats in the tunnel and Moles on your farm, but you can not befriend the Bats or Moles.

The Purpose for the Wild Animals

The whole point of the wild animals is to receive gifts from them. The wild animal families will give you a gift on certain days of the week if you venture up to the mountaintop at any time of the day. This event has a 25% chance of triggering when you enter the mountaintop area, and it can only occur on sunny days and non-festival days.

  • Mondays: Mouse (Milk, Cheese, or Cheesecake) or Sparrow (Corn, Popcorn, or Baked Corn)
  • Tuesdays: Duck (Killifish, Eel, or Small Blue Crab) or Rabbit (Turnip, Turnip Salad, Mixed Salad)
  • Wednesdays: Monkey (Banana Seed, Banana, or Chocolate Banana) or Raccoon (Soybean, Soy Milk, or Dried Tofu)
  • Thursdays: Fox (Tofu, Deep-Fried Tofu, or Inari Sushi) or Weasel (Egg, Egg soup, or Egg Rice Bowl)
  • Fridays: Bear (Sweetfish, Salmon, or Tuna) or Boar (Shimeji, Shiitake, Brown Mushroom)
  • Saturdays: Panda (Green Tea (Can), Sencha Tea (Can), or Oolong Tea (Can))

Besides the weather and weekday requirement, you need to have a high friendship with the wild animal you're trying to receive a gift from. A wild animal needs to have at least 700 friendship points or higher. The more friendship you have with the wild animal, the greater the chance of getting a better item.

The other advantage to befriending the Boar and Bear wild animals is they'll stop attacking you!

Befriending the Animals

The animal friendship is based on an invisible point system between 1 and 1000. Feeding an animal will get you 10 FP per day. Picking up an animal will get you 5 FP; but for the bear and boar (that can't be picked up) you just have to press A to talk to the animal instead. Even if you receive an angry response in return, you'll get the +5 FP.

You can determine your current friendship level with a wild animal by how it reacts to you. If the animal becomes stressed and runs away when you walk up to it, then you are between 0 and 300 FP. If the animal doesn't react at all, then you are between 301 and 700 FP. If you receive a music note above the animal's head when you get close, then you are friends with the animal and have 701 or more friendship points. At this point you can start to receive gifts at the mountaintop.

To befriend a wild animal, you will need to feed it. Throw food at the animal and make it land somewhat close to where the animal is. If the food is something the animal likes, then it will walk towards the food and eat it. If it is something it doesn't like, then your food offering will be ignored. You only need to feed a member of the wild animal family once. For example, if you feed a Turnip to the brown rabbit, you don't have to feed a Turnip to the white rabbit when you see it on the same day. In fact, the white rabbit will ignore the second Turnip.

Because items bounce across the ground when they land, try to throw from a distance away towards the wild animal. A good distance will be when the animal is close to the edge of your top screen.

Besides befriending animals you can do a few things to decrease your friendship with the wild animals. If you hit a wild animal with one of your tools, you will lose 20 FP. Also, if you litter (throw an item into the rivers) then you will lose -10 FP.
