Animal symbolism:

Dragon: an imaginary animal with the head of a lion, the body and tail of a reptile, and wings of a bat; dragons are associated with the earth and fire; it is the guardian of treasures that only a hero (Jason, Siegfried) can reach.

Ecureuil/Squirrel: hoarding and savings.

Elephant: a symbol of memory, wisdom and longevity; in the Hindu religion, Ganesh the god of wisdom has the head of an elephant.
