  • $\begingroup$ Using hint 3, the third animal added "aosw". Not sure if this means anything. $\endgroup$ Sep 29, 2023 at 10:02

laneeatkajswliuotikes contains:

kijetesantakalu (toki pona for raccoon, a specific land animal, sometimes used humorously) and soweli (toki pona) for animal. The third animal would be waso (bird).
These are similar in both "land animal" and that they are in toki pona.
99% of the credit goes to user 1357924680a who identified the language. I went through about 40 conlangs and am embarrassed that I missed that one, as it has been on my mind this week. But seeing waso as the third meant I knew their suspicion was likely right.
