The following page of the Coral Island beginner's guide focuses on animals in the game. See what other creatures you will come across on the island.
This page of the guide was written based on the Early Access version of the game. It is up to date as of October 12, 2022.
So far, the world of Coral Island in its Early Access doesn't have many animals. You can meet various insects and pets (you can't adopt them yet, but that will change with the next updates), as well as farm animals. There are also creatures in the mines who are trying to kill you. However, there are no wild animals at all. However, this is about to change with the Spring Content Update, which promises to increase the number of creatures traversing the world.
