The first neopet to ever reveal itself, the Chia is a very interesting creature. Its strange genetic make up renders the Chia is a constant state of change, exemplified when a Chia eats certain foods. Initially, people were alarmed that a Chia would turn into a pineapple after eating a pineapple, however now that people have come to realize the nature of the mysterious Chia, it is not uncommon to see Chias shaped like apples, lemons and limes walking up and down the walkways in Neopia. Extremely friendly and caring, expect a hug from these creatures if you meet one.


A herbivore, this prehistoric neopet’s long neck enables it to reach to the tops of trees where the green leaves are juiciest.

These neopets are rumored to have originated from another world, as one sunny day during Neopia’s warmer months; a flock of Draiks was seen flying through the sky.

While enormous in size, the Elephante is surprisingly quick and nimble.

While it can educate its younger siblings, it can also be a handy neopet to have around when that book on the bookshelf is a little out of reach!


Dolphin-like joy and sleek are two descriptions that describe this water bound neopet. Rumored to be one of the fastest swimmers in existence, this species love racing the ocean waves and often, people visit the Neopian coast just to marvel at its antics.


A distant cousin to the Lupe, Gelerts are the embodiment of all that is fun and goofy. They are joyous creatures, with a love of anyone and everything. If you are suffering from a long day at work, there is nothing better than coming home to a Gelert, who will do anything possible to make your day a happier day. Legend and myth have been written about the brave deeds of Gelerts. Such stories have made the name of Gelerts a household name. If anything, their love of children make them excellent baby sitters. However, don’t let their fun-loving nature fool you. Like their Lupe cousins, they’re fiercely protective of their friends and family.


Spirited and humorous neopets, the Gnorbu enjoy making others laugh at any expense. Llama-like, the Gnorbu has a kind heart and an optimistic outlook which allow it to easily make friends with others.


Strong and proud, the Grarrl is a fierce neopet that should only be handled by people who are experienced with raising neopets.

Approach these neopets with caution, and run if you find one in a rampage!


Grundos were once imprisoned by Dr. Sloth’s evil regime. Through his evil ways and experiments, he mutated the peace loving Grundo into beefed up, mind-warped warriors.

These neopets were capable of space travel after all!


The Hissi are ssssssssepent-like and sssslliter everywhere. The distinguishing feature about these creatures is the two wings that adorn their back. Can they use them to fly? Known for their acute vision and maneuverability, these creatures are a force to be reckoned with once they get in close.


The Ixi are hardy forest and wood creatures that are renowned for their cunning and intelligence. Their speed is also something to be marveled at as watching them leap and bound through the forest is a sight to see.

However, if you enter their habitat with bad intentions, be wary as you are forewarned that they are the masters of the wood, and will not tolerate such ill intentions.


Cousins to the Flotsam, the Jetsam are the gangsters of the sea. While many view them as the pirates of the Caribbean, many epics and tales have portrayed these neopets as simply misunderstood souls, who crave for someone to care for them.

Seen flying and gliding around Neopia during the night rather than the day, these friendly creatures are great lovers of fruit and berries.

The Krawk is the only species in existence that are petpet mutations. One day, an owner took his neopet to a cave filled with glowing fungus. The neopet in question also brought along his petpet, which was incidentally a Krawk. When the petpet ate the fungus, it slowly mutated into a full-grown Krawk. Classified by scientists as a neopet and a petpet, this creature loves mischief and it is a common sight to see a shop keeper chase a Krawk down the street while the Krawk runs away with a string of sausages in its claws laughing gleefully.

One of the least seen neopets, the Lenny is naturally tall and overtly cheerful yet highly intelligent.

Shy by nature, this dragonish neopet is very versatile and is a ferocious fighter, making this seasoned battler a prime candidate for people who visit the battledome to duke it out in a test of strength, skill, speed, defense and agility.


These neopets will eat anything! One of the biggest neopets, this pet is renowned for its great defense and attack power, which can be attributed to its colossal size. Unfortunately, what it possess in attack and defense power, lacks in speed. In the history of Neopets, never has a Skeith been known to win a race. Their habit of eating anything, which you can carry, is also somewhat worrying. It’s rough outside nature may also convey the message of unfriendliness, but once this neopet is befriended, you’ll have an environmentally friendly living garbage disposal unit on your hands!

Seal-like, this neopet has huge teeth and an insatiable love of fish. Easily found near the icy waters of Terror Mountain and Snow Valley, offer this neopet a fish and it’ll be more than happy to follow you around for the day. More interested in playing than fighting, you’ll be hard pressed to find a Tuskininny near any battledome arena. If a person is determined however, it has been said that offers of large amounts of fish have met with some success. Woe befalls anyone who comes between a Tuskinniny and its fish. Perhaps that is the secret to unleashing their real power?


The most beautiful and vainest neopet to exist, this neopets’ beauty is unrivaled. A neopet who will spend hours brushing its flowing mane and stare endlessly at its reflection every time it passes a mirror, supply this neopet with a good supply of assorted brushes and beauty accessories to keep it extremely happy. Be warned however, should you ever go shopping with this neopet by your side, make sure you carry at least a thick wad of cash, as the Uni have very expensive tastes in designer clothes and accessories.


Naturally caring, these neopets will always ensure that the other is comfortable before paying attention to itself.

Living on the belief that, “to be loved, one must love,” these neopets are always welcome to any family.


Like the Scorchio, the Wocky are extremely outgoing, friendly and adventuresome.

The Xweetok is one of the most hyperactive neopets you’ll come across. Making their homes in the forests, they are often seen playing tag and zig-zagging anywhere they can. Play tag with them and you’ll have a friend for life.


The Yurble’s cute and cuddly mane allows anyone to easily identify it from a distance. While it may give off the impression of being extermely cute and cuddly and the slightest bit of cheerfulness, the mane is symbolic of the powerful physical nature it possesses. Trust me, you don’t want to be near one when they’re angered. With a strong liking for fruits, these creatures can be seen fossicking in undergrowth for food!


Whenever someone asks, “What does luck have anything to do with it?” you can reply, “Luck has everything to do with it,” especially if you have a Zafara as a friend. Zafaras are the bringers of good will and good luck to anyone who treats them with respect, love and friendship. If you know any friends that have won the lottery recently or have stumbled upon a rare treasure, check to see if they have any Zafaras!
