The Scamander-in-chief is a kind soul who donates dozens of Scamanders to the Money Tree in Neopia Central every year on October 12th. You'll have to be quick to snap one up though!
The desert is a treacherous place. You'll never make it to Sakhmet! Turn back before my scamanders steal all your fruit and... drumroll, please... leave you to your DOOOOM!!! Heh, that never gets old.
The Scamander-in-chief's name is a play on the title Commander-in-chief.
