Before customisation hit Neopia in 2007, the look of Neopets changed every few years to give them a fresher look. Below, you can browse through the versions of each species, some having more than others.
Below you will find the 5 past versions and revamps of the Acara.
When they were first introduced on the site, Acaras were called Tigrens. They sported long, fluffy tails and had large fins instead of ears.
In their more spherical second version, Tigrens developed the characteristic horns and ears of the modern-day Acara. The basic colours were briefly changed from pastel to primary colours.
Tigrens were renamed to Acaras in this short lived redesign, which changed very little.
No longer a head with legs, this finalized Acara design was much more popular.
This artwork update brought small changes to some of the colour designs, and gave the Acara a slightly more dynamic pose and detailed shading.
