Though this Vegimal is rarely seen, his limited appearances on the show are worthwhile, and his lovable traits are hard to miss. If you want to know Pikato in real life, keep on scrolling!
The Vegimals, in general, are unique little creatures. They are fish-vegetable hybrids. If you want to know what combination our loveable Vegimals is, we have read in the Octonauts Wiki that Pikato is half Pike and half Tomato. Now that explains his interesting name!
Let’s get to know Pikato even better! In the series, you might get confused between Pikato and Tominnow as they bear the same physical structure since they are both half tomatoes. For you to distinguish the two, Pikato has a green pigment and much taller than Tomminow.
The said height difference can be justified since Pikes are larger fish than Minnows. According to the AZ Animal website, Pike fishes can grow from 20 inches to 70 inches, making them one of the largest fishes of their genus. On the other hand, Minnows mainly measures 3 inches to 4 inches long, as stated by the Animals Network website.
After getting a peek at Pikato’s fish physical trait, let’s compare his behavior to a Pike. As a member of Vegimals, Pikato is known for his friendly nature and good relationship with others. However, Pikes, especially the Northern Pikes, is not the fishes you want on your friend list.
From what we have read from the Guidesly website, Northern Pikes are aggressive and greedy hunters. They are not picky, as they prey on anything that comes in their way. Additionally, these fishes are known for their solitary and territorial nature.
Well, let’s not forget the Pikato is half Tomato. With his green pigment, we can say that Pikato is a young or unripe tomato. Though unripe tomatoes are deemed to have a less sweet taste, their health benefits are remarkable. As stated by the Health Benefits Time website, green tomatoes are good for cancer prevention, eye health maintenance and are packed with antioxidants.
After learning Pikato and his real-life version, we can’t deny that he is a fantastic character and deserves to be one of our favorite Vegimals!
