Hmm, I'm not sure if there were ever any official English names given for the animals besides "pigmole"...I think "grapehippo" is a fanon name? Though that works just fine. Another fanon name I've seen around is "coonbird" for the "Tobitanuki". Honestly, most of the animal names are kind of a mouthful, so maybe as a fandom we could come up with more nicknames for them?

EDIT: Just remembered episode 20 of the US release named some of the animals.
