Learning the Ways of the Gangee
Now, before I start this article, I would like to state that the plural of Gangee
is Gangee. Not Gangees. Gangee. Now, many reading this article will be wondering
what a Gangee is. And many reading this article will be too lazy to look it up
on the search bar. If you are one of the people that looked it up, good for you.
Give yourself a pat on the back. Now, what Gangee are, is Haunted Wood Petpets.
They have large, cute, can-be-creepy eyes, which are all pupil. No whites. They
are most commonly pink, have large feet and large ears, and are rather cute. They
have voracious appetites and eat whatever comes there way. All of that, you can
find in the search bar. But, here are some little-known facts of the Gangee.
1: Evilness. While Gangee are very similar to Meepits, the are not
evil. Creepy, maybe. Spooky, maybe. But evil? No. They actually love Feepits.
They taste quite good in a quiche. My Skeith told me that. *shifty eyes* But
not being evil doesn't mean they do good. They do, however, try to focus their
diet on the evil side, which is lower in calories.
2: Herders/Breeders. There are very few Gangee herders/breeders in
Neopia, which explains the height of the Gangee's rarity. Luckily, in the ancient
city of Altador, there is one man who is the greatest Gangee breeder of them
all: Old Man Withers, Multitasker Extraordinaire! Not only is he a Disco Dancer,
Underwater Basket-Weaver, Alchemist, Miner, Engineer, Juggler, and failed Astrologist,
but he herds and breeds Gangee! He has a club for that too, though he makes
sure only the professional Gangee herders and breeders get in.
3: Evolution. Gangee are descended from Tyrannian Warfs. The bone structure
is the same in the arm, hand, and feet joints. They also have eyes with no whites.
Tyrannian Warfs were the Monoceraptor's favorite food, so they developed larger
ears so they could hear the Monoceraptor coming (for a two-ton monster, the
Monoceraptor can be awfully quiet). The ears also link Gangee to Zafaras, for
their ears are extremely similar in size and in detail. The larger, stronger,
feet are because when they heard the Monoceraptor coming, they sometimes had
trouble jumping to a hiding spot. The larger eyes developed when they couldn't
tell a rock from a Reptillior. And, despite the similarities, experts say Gangee
are not related to Meepits.
4: Habitat. Gangee were originally, as you know, in Tyrannia, but eventually
they all moved out. They sought a land that had fewer predators. They arrived
at Terror Mountain, and after seeing why Terror Mountain had Terror in its name,
they escaped to the Ice Caves. Because of the Snowager, they once again moved.
They disappeared on the other side of Neopia for a long while, but after that
they were found, surprisingly, in Mystery Island. It turns out that Gangee love
the water, and their feet act as great flippers. Their fur is waterproof. After
shedding fur accordingly, they were prepared to journey to all of Neopia (except
for the Lost Desert, which they couldn't stand because of the lack of water).
4: Tails. If you haven't noticed, you never see a picture of a Gangee's
tail. You may be thinking "My goodness, the tail is a vampire, so it doesn't
show up on camera," or something else equally ridiculous.
But no, the true reason is: All Gangee tails are different. Some have long,
fluffy tails, while others have short and stubby tails. One Gangee's tail is
over 5 feet long! You can often tell a Gangee's rank, strength, and even personality
by their tail. The stronger Gangee keep their tails of the ground at all times
(except for when their sleeping) so they can keep it fit. The longer the tail,
the higher the rank. And finally, if a Gangee has a short tail, it also means
short tempered. If it has a thin tail, it is a pushover. If it is thick, the
Gangee in question is very assertive, and in many cases stubborn.
5: Diet. Gangee, being the gluttons they are, will eat nearly anything.
There are some things they love to eat, and some things they won't eat. They
won't eat: dung of any kind, most other Petpets, socks, dead things, and asparagus.
They love to eat: Feepits, quiches, Petpetpets, things of evil, and toast.
6: Colors. Gangee are lucky in the fact that they can be painted many
colors. But, you might want to look out for what will happen when you paint
them. If you paint one Robot, then it will be a handful. You will be spending
Neopoint after Neopoint to keep it in tip-top shape. You will be spending day
after day polishing it and keeping it out of the rain. It will need to charge
a lot, so if you like playing with your Gangee, you might want to rule this
one out. However, it can be great fun showing your Robot Gangee off, and it
has built-in laser cannons in case you're tired of those annoying neighbors.
*wink* Darigan Gangee are a headache, at the least! The find great mirth in
ripping up your possessions, biting on your ear, and generally making your life
absolutely miserable! It is a great pet for your Darigan or evil Neopet, though;
it makes a great partner in crime. It also comes in handy as a gift for those
that you are not so fond of. *evil chuckle*
7: Relationship with other Petpets. Gangee have rivals, friends, and
food in the world of Petpets, and it is up to me to impart to you that information.
Gangee are the mortal enemy of the Werhond, the rivals of the Meepit, and the
predator of the Feepit. The Werhonds and the Gangee have always hated each other.
They have raised war too many times to count! It is not known why they are enemies:
It could be something that happened long ago. It could be for no reason at all.
But the reason is unknown, and it's not going to be found any time soon. The
Meepits, they don't go to war with them, but they try to outdo them in every
way. Who has the more acorns, the tallest tree: whatever is countable, they
compete in. Their relationship with the Feepit is not complicated: They just
eat them. A Gangee's best friend is most likely a Calabat. Calabats also despise
the Werhonds, and they join together to defeat them when war time comes.
The article is now over. Hopefully, you have benefited from learning the ways
of the Gangee, and I hope you, spurred on by the awe-inspiring facts seen here,
will be a Gangee expert like me someday. There are many other secrets of the
Gangee, but those are only open to the most dedicated researcher. And, after
reading this, I severely hope TNT will make more Gangee items (at the moment
there are none), and I look forward to seeing you another day, in a different
article. And lastly, no offense meant to Adam and Dragona for the part about
Gangee disliking asparagus and socks, for that is the way they are. :P
