The peninsula in The Forest is populated with many different kinds of animals. These animals become an essential part of the player's survival as some of them can be exploited for food, hide or other crafting materials.
There are passive, aggressive and decorative animals at the moment, differing in their behaviour and amount of threat they pose to the player.
List of Animals[edit | edit source]
Passive[edit | edit source]
Passive animals do not harm the player, but can be killed. Some drop useful items upon death, for more information see the individual animals' pages.
Hostile[edit | edit source]
Hostile animals attack the player if provoked. Provocation ranges from nearing them to attacking. Some of them are worth hunting down, however, as they may yield resources when killed, like skin or meat.
Decorative[edit | edit source]
These animals serve no purpose other than to add immersion to the game. They cannot be killed or otherwise interacted with - apart from spiders, which sometimes appear when rocks are picked up and can be killed by stabbing them with a spear.
