Hello, and welcome to the first and hopefully not the
last episode of Auro_San Goes In-depth About NeoPets. Today I shall talk
about the Chomby and bring knowledge to all of you who wish to adopt one.
To start we must pack our bags and head to the land of Tyrannia. Tyrannia
is spilt up in three parts, the Jungle,
and the Volcano.
When the Ice Caves first cracked to Tyrannia we saw a yellow dinosaur
chewing on vegetation, later to be known as the Chomby.
Assuming that the Chomby is a herbivore we search through
the lands to see where the highest populations of the dino can be found.
The Volcano is to hot for and food the Chombys likes so we can cross that
off the list. The Plateau is to dry and arid for any green to grow so
the Chomby couldn't live there. The lush and tropical Jungle is where
we are most likely to find our reptilian friend. As we look around the
Jungle we see that it has become a place of merchandise since Neopians
invaded. Many scientists don't believe that Tyrannia had so many stores
and games until it was discovered by the people of Neopia.
Now you have to know that the Chomby was not the first
dinosaur NeoPet. In fact the Grarrl was a very early NeoPet. Also we must
take in place that the residents of Tyrannia have not taken into the evolution
stage. Many prehistoric NeoPets have lived in Tyrannia for millions of
years. Some scientists theorise that there is another entrance from Neopia
to Tyrannia that some of the prehistoric residents came out through to
build the current day NeoPets. However this theory is highly unstable
but has the backing of many great minds.
Now we go back to the Chomby. We were first able to
create the cute creature on March 22nd 2001. However many people were
unaware that the Chomby was limited edition so its popularity wasn't that
high to start. After about a month all the Chombys in Neopia were created.
If you still would like a Chomby then try going to the pound. Ever since
the Chomby has come out it has inspired many artists to portray it and
the NeoPets staff to pump out more Chomby related games and items.
When the Chomby was released many people didn't know
it had a mortal enemy, the fungus ball. This was revealed when the game
the Fungus Balls was released on the 27th of March. This game
showed how the fungus balls were real jerks to the species of Chomby by
chasing them around and knocking them out whenever they finally caught
up to our favorite dino. Personally I find this game very challenging
and kudos to anyone that can beat every level.
Now we shall study the physical anatomy of the Chomby.
As you can see at first the Chomby has strange markings on his forehead
and on both sides of his stomach. These prints are argued by magicians
to have magic powers well scientists just say they are just ordinary.
Now before the Chomby was able to be painted its eyes and spikes were
always green. After the affects of painting however both can change into
almost any color, the oddest is rainbow. The Chomby's long neck is used
for reaching into higher places to find the perfect leaf to snack on.
The Chomby's large eyes are for watching out for itself. The Chombys are
almost the most peaceful NeoPets, other then the Kacheeks.
If you own a Chomby there are some important things to
keep in mind when you're taking care of it. The Chomby's have still not
fully adjusted to the climate above Tyrannia. This makes there skin crack
easily so you must wash you Chomby everyday to keep its skin moist. Do
not feed your Chomby meat, it is not used to seeing all the meat we have
in Neopia and can confuse it with greens. Many times this will get the
Chomby sick because its body isn't adjusted to take in meat. Always pay
attention to your Chomby and give it loving care, you don't have to go
out and spend a fortune on products just let it know that you love it
and respect it.
In closing I would like to say the the Chomby is a great
pet to have, you can even ride it if you want. Give it trust and it will
give you trust. This is Auro_San signing out and hoping you have a great
time on NeoPets!
