Pawprint Isle
"Do you know what a ChuChu is, small fry? No, I'm not talking about the sound you make when you kiss somone! I'm talking about ChuChus! They're those slimy, monster-like puddles of goo that turn into blobs of jelly, stand up, and start jumping at you like crazy when you came near them. Well, in any case, there's lots of them on that island over there, so if you see any, I'd avoid them. They can get...nasty. Now that I think about it, every once and a while I see the potion brewer who lives on Windfall Island come here... Now why would he do that, fry?"

"From there, Dragon Roost Island is east and Windfall Island is west. Many cultural exchanges happen between those two islands."


This island is unique in that it has two separate Secret Caves. The first cave, which can be accessed by crawling inside the small structure found in the middle of the island, contains an underground passage hiding a Piece of Heart, a Joy Pendant, many ChuChus, and a Purple Rupee. The second cave is accessible only after Link collects the Hookshot, since it is located in one of the island's "fingers". Inside it the young hero gains, after defeating numerous Wizzrobes, a Silver Rupee. Also, there is a second Piece of Heart that can be obtained from the bottom of the sea by using one of the Treasure Charts found inside the Tower of the Gods.
