How to feed the animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Some animals are much harder to feed than others.

Feeding the animals in Disney Dreamlight Valley is not as easy as just approaching them and giving them their favorite food. For some you’ll need to chase them around until they accept feeding, for others, they’re a little easier.


To feed a Crocodile their favorite food you’ll need to be patient, and very good at not being seen. When you see one you will need to wait until they put their heads down. Once they do this, sneak towards them, stopping when they raise their heads again. Repeat this until you get close enough to feed them.


Thankfully you won’t need to play any games with these adorable Foxes. However, you will still need to chase them around the Frosted Heights until they want to accept some food. The hungry animals will come up to you and initiate the chase so watch where you step.


Rabbits work in a very similar way to foxes, but are a little easier to follow and feed. You will need to go up to them and follow them as they lead you on a chase around the Peaceful Meadow. This will happen three to four times before you can feed them.


If you want to feed a Racoon you’ll need to be patient and slow. Running towards them will cause them to run away so make sure you approach them carefully. Sneak slowly and you’ll be able to feed these furry friends.


Ravens are incredibly elusive and we haven’t actually been able to locate them yet. However, we will update this when we manage to find this pesky bird.

Sea Turtles

Unlike the tricky Ravens, the Sea Turtles are a lot easier to spot and much simpler to feed. All you need to do is approach them, wait for them to pop out of their shells and give them their favorite food.


Squirrels are among the easiest animals to catch in Disney Dreamlight Valley and are one of the first you are likely to come across. All you need to do is approach them and feed them. The ones that want food will not run away.


While a lot of the other animals in this game prefer you to approach slowly, the Sunbirds will force you into a quick run as they dart away. Keep chasing them and remain determined to feed this tricky animal.
