What do I do with this monkey I have found?



  • I keep coming across a monkey when I am wandering in the forest/mountains or down by the lake.

    I can pick him up, but that seems to annoy him.

    Does he have a purpose? He seems out of place, unlike the boars and bears and such that I have seen.

    What can I do with the monkey? Does he have a purpose?



  • You can feed them, pick them up, and talk with them, eventually befriending them.

    When you become really good friends with the certain wild animals, entering their area will trigger a gift event.

    The wild animal family will give you 10 of a certain item based on the animal family you befriend. By befriending a wild animal of a particular color, you might unlock another different colored one of the same family (which you can also befriend) or something else....

    Here is an updated list of wild animal likes and gifts translated from this wiki.
