"Acaras are a playful bunch that love to live by the sea. Their favorite pastimes are diving for hidden treasure off the coastline and playing Gormball on the beach."
-Neopets

The Acara is a species of pet in Neopets. They can be adopted and cared for by their owner as well as painted various colors. It was put on the site on April 19, 2000 under the name 'Tigren'.

[edit] Appearance

The Acara appears to be some form of aquatic themed cat creature. Their most notable feature are two tentacle-like forms protruding from the top of their head and extending down to their back. These 'tentacles' are most likely showing their aquatic descent. The Acara also bears two large ears that resemble fins. Surprisingly, the Acara has no gills even though they are an aquatic species. It can also be assumed the Acara walks on all fours, depicted in their official pictures.

[edit] History

The Tigren, painted red.
The Acara was chosen as a winner in the Create-a-Pet contest on April 28, 2000 and was originally called the 'Tigren', an otter-like pet up until April 19, 2000 when the Tigren was changed to a furball-like Acara. The creature than evolved into the a hamster-like Acara on October 31, 2000 (Halloween). The final transformation of the pet took place on February 14, 2001 (Valentines Day), where it took on the appearance it has now. As time passed the Acara received an updated version to match the growing population of Neopet species.

[edit] Overview

The correct pronunciation of Acara is: ack-ah-ra. Acaras are known for their aquatic nature and have been said to live on the coast. It is suggested that they live mainly on land due to the fact that they lack gills. Although Acara pets have mainly been depicted walking on fours, they have also been shown walking on two feet, these Acara's however were characters created for Neopet's storylines and plots. It has been said that their thick fur keeps them warm when swimming deep in water, so it can be assumed that they can spend long periods of time in the depths of the ocean.

It is also stated that the Acara enjoys to the play the game of Gormball, however Gormball does not feature a playable character whos species is of the type. So the Acara most likely plays non-tournament games.
