Poptropicans are the dominant species of planet Poptropica. Although they are similar to Humans in many respects, the low gravity of their planet has led them to develop much larger heads and thinner limbs and necks. For some reason they also lack noses. They are able to jump higher and run faster than most Humans, and often survive concussions and long falls without injury. Flesh tones are usually within the same range as those of Humans but can occasionally be yellow, red, green, or purple.
Poptropicans live on most of the dozens of small islands throughout their planet. Few of them are proficient travelers and most die on the same islands they were born on. However, due to the small size of the landmasses, a thriving trade industry is vital to their quality of life.
