The animal life in Dinkum offers players fun and exciting game options. There are multiple types of animals in the game, ranging from predators to more harmless species.
Depending on the species, players can raise farm animals, hunt wild animals, or tame and capture the animals. Before doing so, however, players must learn how to craft and apply for licenses. It also requires Irwin, the local zoo keeper, to set up a permanent shop. The process will take time and effort, but soon players will be pros at it Dinkum Animals.
Aggressive wild animals
One of the first things players will realize is that some animals will ignore them, but others will attack them immediately. There are a few violent species on the island. Here are some animals players should watch out for:
- crocodile, the island’s crocodiles, can be found in almost all the rivers in the area. They hunt many of the non-aggressive animals on the island and will attack players on sight. They move quickly in the water but will hunt if spotted on land.
- caution Mus are large emu-like creatures. They have a prominent horn on their head, so they lower their heads and charge at players hoping to hit them. They are native to the tropics, allowing players to avoid them in many island areas.
- sharks, fortunately only pose a threat in the ocean. While they sometimes spawn near scrubland, they are usually found in the Southern Ocean. They’re incredibly fast in the water, so it’s good practice to keep a reasonable distance when handling them.
- bush devil are large predators that can shoot fire from their mouths and will attempt to bite if players get too close. Bush devils are primarily nocturnal, but will wake up and attack if approached while they are sleeping. Bush devils are found in the pine forests.
- Jellyfish, Like sharks, they are only found in water. They are not limited to the oceans and can also be found in most rivers. They move slowly but will poison players if they get too close.
- bats can only be found in the mines and also attack on sight. However, they are fragile and can usually be knocked out quickly.
Non-aggressive wild animals
There are a few non-aggressive species that also live on the island. They don’t attack on sight; However, some have offensive moves. Here are some of the friendlier animals:
- Jackaroos are very similar to kangaroos but with deer-like characteristics. They can be found in almost every different region. They are shy, but when attacked they will brace themselves on their tails and kick at their attacker.
- diggos are the canines of the island and are also found in most regions. Despite being predators, they don’t show much interest in players. However, if attacked, they will defend themselves by biting. They can be tamed with the animal collars in the mines.
- puree are the gentle relatives of Wary Mus. They are slow and docile, making them easy targets for the island’s predators. Players can tell the difference between species by their color. Mus are light grey-brown while the brutal versions are dark grey, almost black.
- kidnas are very similar to hedgehogs. They ignore players when they approach, but when attacked they curl up into a ball and charge at them.
how to hunt
Players can hunt the wild animals found on the island using handcrafted weapons or tools purchased from the shop. In order to get recipes for weapons, players must apply for a hunting license in the base tent. Fletch is responsible for all licenses and will give them to players in exchange for Permit Points. Permit points are earned by completing milestones and can be accumulated daily, so there are many ways to earn them. Players should also purchase a Mining and Logging license to unlock John’s ax and pickaxe.
To hunt, Choose a tool or weapon and get close to a wild animal species. Prepare to fight and move fast to avoid taking too much damage. Players will faint when the heart meter runs out and a new day begins.
How to use traps
Wild animals can also be caught and captured if the player has the catching license which will be made available to the players once they have the hunting license. After getting the license, Fletch will teach players trap recipes.
Players must set up the traps after crafting them. To get the animals into the traps, players can then hunt the passive species or lure the more aggressive ones into pursuit.
How do I get farm animals
Players can also raise and handle farm animals. There are three types of livestock:
- Chokes: are chickens and lay eggs that players can sell or cook and eat.
- Vombats: act as cows in Dinkum, and will start producing milk when they are old enough.
- Please are a combination of sheep and platypus, and players can get wool from them.
These can all be purchased irwin. Irwin visits the island regularly and sells animals, feed, and feeding troughs. Players must build a relationship with him by fulfilling requests and purchasing chooks and animal handling supplies. However, Irwin does not sell anything unless players have a trading license.
Vombats and Pleeps become available when Irwin’s barn is built, and he is a permanent resident of the island. All materials for the deed must be found and placed in the construction zone for construction to begin.
Resident Inquiries and the Bulletin Board
Sometimes residents and visitors ask players to fulfill requests. The bulletin board requires a deed to be purchased, but after it’s built, residents can ask the player to complete wildlife-related tasks, such as bush devils. Alphas are sturdier, bigger, and more powerful, so be careful when approaching them. The reward for tending to them is usually a handsome amount of dinks.
