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'.
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.
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.
