Repeat Run Desert Animal Collectibles
These are animals that can only be obtained when you have unlocked the advanced skills. You can revisit the level and use your new skills to find the other animals.
Bird – requires the Electricity skill; in the desert area on top of the wall, start from the north tower of the town first and then use Dimension to reveal the teleport pad on the south corner of the tower. Use Electricity on the pad, and then walk along the wall and exit to the desert again, then use another teleport pad to reach the bird.
Chameleon – requires the Electricity skill; in the desert area, head to the eastern corner of the map and use the Dimension to reveal a wheel. Interact with the wheel to open a gate below the ground. Then, head beside the Queen’s cat statue and use the Electricity skill to teleport underground and reach the chameleon.

Go through the door to reach the rabbit.
