Neopia's Insight: Zafaras



To introduce a new series in the Neopian Times, Neopia's Insight, I have decided to kick off with a fabulous Neopet species: the Zafara. Zafaras are my all-time favorite so I would like to kindly share with the rest of Neopia the amazingness of Zafaras. I'll talk about Zafaras themselves, popular paint jobs, items, and MORE! Plus, there will even be a nifty quiz at the end to test YOUR knowledge on Zafaras. So, without further ado, enjoy Neopia's Insight, Zafara style...

Unusual Foods: Cupcakes

Nothing can hold his interest – even the novel he had been reading had come to an unsatisfying, boring ending. So here he was, walking to Neopia Central for the weekly newspaper.
