Green zafara
Zafara (zaff-AH-ra) are neopets. The Zafara is a furry pet which walks on its two large feet. Notable for its large floppy ears and long, powerful tail, it also has characteristic spiky ridges on its spine and fluffy fur on its fringe and chest. While some people think the Zafara looks like a kangaroo, it seems to move around by walking rather than hopping. At about 40-50cm tall, it is a medium-sized Neopet.

Zafaras are known for their adventurous nature, and can be found just about everywhere in Neopia; they adapt well to many different habitats and do not have a specific homeland.

Previous Versions

he original Zafara was a quadruped with a very long torso. An artwork update switched from gradients to pastel colours. The finalized design put Zafaras in a more upright pose with bodies more similar to kangaroos. The eyes were also slightly modified at one point to be darker.[2]


Famous Zafaras


  • The concept for the first Zafara was created by Chanii1234, who was lucky and talented enough to win a design contest.[3]
  • Oddly enough, Zafara Day does not fall on the anniversary of the date above, and is instead celebrated on February 3rd (25th May is Koi Day).
