Mynci (MWN-see) are Neopets. The Mynci is a short-furred Neopet and walks on two legs. It is easily recognised by its large ears and eyes, its unusual snout, and the very long curly tail that it can use for grasp and balance like a fifth limb. At about 80cm, it is slightly taller than the average Neopet. Myncis seem to originate in jungle areas, where there are plenty of trees to climb and fresh fruit to eat. They have taken particularly well to the dense tropical forests of Mystery Island. Their natural agility and sense of balance makes them great climbers, but they are also surprisingly strong pets with sturdy arms and a tight grip. Myncis adore fresh fruit, especially the banana (and its Neopian relatives). While these fun-loving pets may get up to pranks, they do their best to stay away from Neopia's real dark forces and evil influences, traditionally promising to "see, hear, speak and eat no evil". Myncis are one of a few species of Neopet who seem to have their own form of communication within their own species, in addition to the Neopian language that all Neopets speak. Nothing much is known about Mynci language except that it sounds a lot like "ooh-ooh, ee-ee" to those who don't speak it. They are not limited edition, meaning you can create one any day of the year.

Some colours of Mynci were exempt from auto-conversion when Neopets updated the pet art.
Before we had Mynci, we had Mellish, a less-than-serious Neopet that was designed after one of Adam's friends. After it was later renamed and redesigned to resemble a monkey, the Mynci inherited its mop of red hair and freckles from its predecessor. It was redesigned again with the Mellish features removed. Its tail was elongated and rolled up into a spiral shape. The last update before customisation gave the Mynci more dimension and a sneakier appearance.
- The name Mynci is a corruption of the Welsh word for Monkey -- Mwnci, which is pronounced similar to the English 'Monkey'.
