Features and Overview
The animals here all live together peacefully and are able to speak the same language as Link and the inhabitants of Mabe Village. It is located in the southeastern corner of Koholint Island, just west from Yarna Desert. To the south is the region known only as East of the Bay, to the west is Martha's Bay, to the northwest is Ukuku Prairie, and to the north (but inaccessible from it) is the Face Shrine.
The inhabitants consist of rabbits, squirrels, a goat named Christine, a bear, an alligator artist named Schule Donavitch, a hippo, and a Zora. All the animals seem to be enamored with the singing voice of Marin, who goes with Link to sing the Ballad of the Wind Fish to all of the inhabitants that live there. Otherwise, the animals constantly remind Link that Marin must come back someday to sing them another song.
One of the residents of the town says that the Animal Village is a sister city to that of Mabe Village. The reason that these two villages were never seen to have closer bands than what was shown was mainly because of the uprising in monster sightings and attacks that spanned the area connecting the two together.

- "Animal Village
Animals have made their home in a village on the southeast corner of the island. Most animals in the village can speak, and they seem to get along well with the residents of Mabe. One Zora also lives here in secret." (Encyclopedia (Dark Horse Books), pg. 109 (LA))
- "Hey! Did ya know Animal Village and Mabe Village are sister cities? Yes, even though they aren't large enough to be called cities... Anyway, I heard from a very good source that they have a Dream Shrine in Mabe, and that it has something good inside... Is that true?" — Rabbit (Link's Awakening DX)
- "Lately there have been a lot of monsters in the area, so we can't go to Mabe Village... I wonder how Marin is doing?" — Rabbit (Link's Awakening)
