Dancing Animals is first heard after the boy has been kidnapped by goblins when they begin to dance. It is heard again during the dwarf show, but is probably most memorable as the music for Matango village.

This song is track 8 on the official soundtrack, but there is a second version of the song that is not on the soundtrack. Unlike the other echo versions in the game, the echoed version of Dancing Animals is noticeably different from the original. The echoed version is played in the cave making your way from Upperland to Matango village.
