What is Kemono Friends?

Kemono Friends, also known as KemoFure, is a Japanese multimedia franchise created by Mine Yoshizaki, that focuses on the adventures of anthropomorphized animal girls known simply as Friends. It began as a 2015 mobile game but has expanded into a manga, stage play and wildly successful 2017 anime with multiple new projects planned for the future. While it is a relatively new IP, the franchise has succeeded in making a name for itself on its path to becoming a "series that will last 100 years".

The universe of Kemono Friends, contrary to its innocent appearance, is expansive and complex. It boasts a cast of over 400 characters as well as an intricate and puzzling backstory. What's more, much of the series's media has never seen an official release outside of its native Japan. Our wiki, Japari Library, exists as a resource for the series's English-speaking fanbase. It features translations, detailed analyses of the franchise's lore, and information on Friends and the real creatures from which they came.

Friend of the Week

Spectacled CaimanOriginal.png

The Spectacled Caiman is a small to medium-sized crocodilian native to Central and South America. They reach up to 2.5 meters in length. Younger caimans are bright yellow-ish with dark spots and bands around their body and tails. As they age, those features become less distinct. A bony ridge in front of their eyes connecting the two gives them the appearance as if they wore glasses, giving them their name.

Spectacled Caimans are highly adaptive. They live in the wetlands of northern South America, preferring slow-moving rivers, but may also live in lakes, estuaries and brack-ish ponds. They feed on fish, amphibians, reptiles, water birds and small mammals. The diet of younger ones consists mostly of insects, crustaceans and snails instead. In case of bad conditions with scarce food, caimans will also cannibalise and eat smaller caimans.

Mating season is between April and August. Both males and females mate with multiple partners though the female will eventually choose a male to raise her young and start building a nest. She will then lay 20-40 eggs and incubate them over the course of up to 3 months. Parents take exceptional care of their young, which will become indepedent at around one and a half years of age. Hatchlings form large groups from multiple families for protection and to hunt.

Especially younger Spectacled Caimans are often attacked by other, larger predators such as birds of prey, large snakes and foxes. Lizards and coatis would also try to steal and eat their eggs. Humans hunt them for their meat, eggs and rarely skin, which is less valuable than that of other crocodilians. As they're highly adaptable, they can usually relocate in case of habitat loss, though the increase of predators in their new location hurts other species.

The Kemono Friends Spectacled Caiman appeared only in the nexon game and season 2. She has green hair with dark spots and long twin tails. She has a small red ribbon tied between the two bumps representing the triangular ridge above the animals eyes. Her vest, fingerless gloves and boots are made of caiman skin and she wears torn shorts. In the nexon game, she loved glasses, especially Margay's and Eurasian Otter's. She also gave a pair of glasses to Spectacled Hare-Wallaby. In season 2 she, together with Saltwater Crocodile, has an ongoing conflict with the Leopard sisters.
