The Usul (OO-sull) is a squirrel-like Neopet that was released on November 15, 1999 as one of the original Neopets on the site. Usuls are loyal and friendly pets who prefer to live in trees. During cold weather, Usuls are the first to share their food with friends. The Usul has also its own line of dolls called Usuki. At around 70cm, it is a medium-sized Neopet.
They have a strong affinity with their friends and communities, and are quite sensitive (some might say vain) about their outward appearances-spending lots of time and effort on grooming is common for Usuls. Because of their warm, fluffy fur, they adapt very well to cold climates, and are often found engaging in winter sports in the Terror Mountain region.

Some colours of Usuls were exempt from auto-conversion when Neopets updated the pet art.
Like other Neopets, the original Usul's body fur changed when it was painted different colours. Usuls were later redrawn with a more human-shaped face and had their neck ruffs and bows change with their colours instead.
