The amphibious Kiko is just as happy on land as it is in the water. They dislike very dry places and need to be near water when young.
Kikos are amphibious Neopets who resemble small, floating spheres with wide eyes and flipper-like, clawed hands. All Kikos wear two adhesive bandages on their heads and have a single curl of hair.
As babies, they cannot leave the water for long periods of time, and they like to remain near it as adults. They can breathe equally well in water and air. Although their flipper-like hands appear weak, they can be used to propel the Kiko at high speeds while in water.
The Kiko was one of the original pets on the site. Kikos are one of the few Neopets species to receive their own "Mini-World" in Neopia. Kiko Lake is home to 9,400 Neopets, 92% of whom are Kikos.
Kikos were changed to a limited edition pet around the time Kiko Lake was introduced. Kikos have also been given some exotic colours given to few other pets. They are the only pet besides the JubJub who can become the colours "Clay" or "Garlic," the only one besides the Chia who can become "Chokato", and one of a handful of pets who can be painted "Sponge".
Kikos have been much less heavily merchandised in the "real world" than other pets, although they were featured as a plushie in a Neopets McDonald's promotion. In the Neopets TCG, Kikos are associated with the element of water.
As of June 2007, Kikos hold the position of 42nd most popular out of the 50+ species. The Kiko's status as limited edition pet may account for their low numbers. July 17th is Kiko Day.
