Animal Antics (Donkey Kong Land 2)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Similar to its Donkey Kong Country 2 counterpart, Animal Antics features a variety of Animal Friends. This level only features three of them, each in their own segment of the level: Rambi the Rhino, Squitter the Spider and Rattly the Rattlesnake. Unlike its counterpart, Enguarde and Squawks do not appear in this stage. The enemies featured include Neeks, Kaboings, Flitters, Zingers, and Spinies.
The level begins behind an Animal Barrel containing Rambi and an arrangement of Bananas forming an arrow pointing east. As Rambi, the Kongs must journey in this direction to reach several Neeks that crawl down small stair-like structures. Soon, Rambi travels down a hill with a pair of Kaboings along it. At the bottom of the hill, there is a DK Barrel and a lower ledge that is followed by a small pit with a Zinger above it. Once the rhinoceros crosses this pit, he discovers the letter K and a wider pit that he can only cross by bouncing off of the Zingers above it. Rambi continues past several Neeks and Kaboings and passes a No Animal Sign, and turns back into the Kongs.
On a nearby lower ledge, they can find an Animal Barrel that holds Squitter. They are required to turn into this spider in order to cross a wide pit just ahead. As the creature crosses this abyss, he encounters several Flitters and a few groups of bananas that form arrows pointing to the east. After Squitter makes his way over the pit, he can find the letter O high in the air around a Zinger, as well as a Kaboing that bounces near a small pit. Two more Kaboings wait to attack on the other side of this pit, and they are followed by a small gap that the spider must cross to reach an additional pit. Once he crosses this pit and the Zinger in it, he finds a DK Barrel and a pair of Zingers that fly in yet another abyss, which is immediately followed by a Kaboing. Soon, Squitter reaches a group of bananas that point to the west over another abyss. After the spider reaches the other side of this obstacle and dodges the many Zingers and Flitters above it, he reaches a platform with the level's Star Barrel on it.
A Spiny and a No Animal Sign follow here, and once Squitter reaches the No Animal Sign, he turns back into the Kongs. As they progress down a few ledges ahead, Diddy and Dixie discover an Animal Barrel that transforms them into Rattly, whose portion occurs for the remainder of the level. He must cross a wide pit full of Zingers. As he crosses, he comes up to the letter N. After the snake makes his way over, he can find a banana trail near a Zinger that leads down between two groups of spikes, where a Banana Coin sits. Once the Animal Friend jumps over the small set of spikes ahead of him and dodges a Zinger, he reaches a rather long pathway with a Kaboing on it. A pit is near here with the letter G above it and another Kaboing after it. If Rattly continues from here, he passes a Spiny and then a long set of spikes with several insect enemies floating over it, including Zingers and Flitters. Almost immediately after passing one more Spiny from here, the snake reaches a No Animal Sign that turns him back into the Kongs. They must finish off the level by heading east and crossing one last pit to discover a spring, which they must jump on to complete the level.
