Tonu green

Tonu are one of the many species from Tyrannia in Neopia. They are boisterous Neopets who love running around and playing ball games, even if they knock things over in the process. They have large appetites, but may tend to overeat if not careful.[1]

They are Limited edition, meaning they can only be created on their special pet day (Feb. 21), gotten from a morphing potion, or gotten from the lab ray.

Site description: "Tonu are native to the land of Tyrannia, hatched from the gigantic eggs of some unknown monster. They love nothing more than to charge around and cause havoc, knocking over whatever gets in their way." [2]
