The Skeith (skeeth) is a dragon like Neopet species that can be found in Neopia. They have a thick and bulky body, with small wings that are able to support their weight when flying. The general thick shape of their body is partially due to their skeleton as shown by a Skeith of the Transparent colour. They are large for a Neopet as they average around 90 centimeters in height, however they are not the largest Neopet, and even the Scorchio, another dragon like Neopet, averages around 120 centimeters in height. A Skeith can stand up on two feet or four feet, and are shown both as a quadruped creature with four identical legs, and a biped creature with two hands.

Skeiths are able to eat any item currently in the Inventory, including non-food items. When hungry, they sometimes randomly and automatically eat an item from the inventory, including non-food items, so it is a good idea to keep items deemed important in the Safety deposit box when not in use. They automatically get sick with Neezles if they eat an item with the word "cheese" in its name.

The Skeith species day is on the 25th of September. They are not limited edition, meaning you can create one any day of the year.

Skeiths have super sharp eyes that can see in the dark, and big sparkling teeth that can bite through anything. They also have strong, powerful paws that are powerful enough to be able to knock an Usul over with one blow. Their tail is able to crush crush anything with just one swing. Skeiths are physically strong, but are lazy and generally prefer other creatures such as Moehog to do their work and care for them instead of doing it themselves.

Site description: "Skeiths are the largest inhabitants of Neopia. They are quite strong but also lazy, peferring to get smaller creatures to do things for them." [1]

Previous Versions

The original design of the Skeith, though much simpler than its current design, has most of the elements still seen in the species. When it was redesigned, its back legs were not well defined, giving the impression that it had very tiny back feet. The Skeith was later redrawn to help it fit in with the current site artwork (although it could really use a diet). Following customisation, Skeiths stand on their hind legs.[2]
