Petpet Lab Ray
In addition to being able to zap your Neopets, you can now zap your petpets with an evil ray! Will your petpet turn into a hideous Meepit, or will it turn into a cute and fluffy Feepit!? If you have any questions about the Petpet Lab Ray, keep reading to get all the information you need!
Where do I access the Petpet Lab Ray?
To turn in your completed Petpet Laboratory Map, visit this page. If you'd like to zap your petpet, you can do so here. Unfortunately, you need to complete the Secret Laboratory Map set before you can get to the Petpet Lab. That means you need this map first.
Once you have access to the Petpet Lab Ray, you may zap any petpet currently attached to your Neopet. (It will not zap any petpets in your inventory, Safety Deposit Box, etc.) If you ever choose to remove your petpet from your Neopet, the petpet will revert back to its original form.
What does the finished map look like?
The finished map looks the same as below. Once you have all of these pieces in your inventory, you can go to this page and turn them in.
What can the ray do to my petpet?
The Petpet Lab Ray can:
- Change your petpet's colour
- Change your petpet's species
- Increase your petpet's level
- Decrease your petpet's level
- Change your petpet's name
- Turn your petpet into a Pile of Soot
- Make your petpet disappear
- Do nothing at all
How many zaps do I get?
You get unlimited zaps once you turn in your completed map! However, you are limited to only one zap per account per day. Some people choose to complete the Petpet Lab map on their side accounts. You can zap whatever petpet of yours you like with your daily zap.
What different names can the ray give to my petpet?
If your language is set to something other than English, you may end up with translated versions of the names listed below.
If the lab has renamed your petpet with a name not listed here, please let us know.
Are there any special colours or species that come only from the Petpet Lab Ray?
Yes. You can only get 8-Bit, Chocolate, Gold, Ice, Jelly, Picnic, and Strawberry coloured petpets from the ray. Species such as the Chiruck and the Graffle are also unique to the ray. You cannot purchase these petpets, because once removed from a pet, they revert back to their original species and colour. For a full listing, check out the Item Database.
Are there any colours or species that the Petpet Lab Ray won't change your petpet?
As of now, we don't think so. There are so many petpets and colours, it'd be difficult to tell if there were. It's confirmed that the ray can zap your petpet Birthday (although Birthday is not exclusive to the Petpet Lab Ray). Given that once you un-attach your zapped petpet, it reverts to its original state, we're thinking that the ray can do any colour and species.
What happens if I zap a petpet?
Well, for one, your zapped petpet is no longer eligible for the Petpet Protection League award. Also, below your petpet on your pet's lookup, it'll say that it has been zapped by the ray. (This indicator will be shown: )
OH EM GEE!!111 The ray just zapped my Slorg into a Moltenore!
Now don't get your undies in a bundle! Un-attaching your petpet will transform it back into its original form. So your Moltenore will revert back to a Slorg.
My Petpet is a Pile of Soot! What do I do?
You can keep zapping it. Piles of Soot have as much chance of changing species as any other kind of Petpet, as far as we know. You can also detach it, in which case it will turn back to its original species and colour.
I zapped my Petpet, and it disappeared. Can I get it back?
No, sorry. Nobody knows where vanished Petpets go, but we haven't found a way of getting them back, and we probably never will. You'll have to get a new Petpet and start over. Same for if you had a petpetpet attached, it's gone too.
Suppose my Abominable Snowball turns into a Slorg, and it's old enough for the avatar. Will I still get it?
Yes. You can get avatars from zapped petpets. However, you won't get the Slorg avatar when it's 100 days old if it's been zapped into something else.
My petpet turned into a cool species, but I don't like the colour. Can I paint it?
Sorry, no. Zapped Petpets are immune to Petpet Paint Brushes.
If I get a Krawk petpet from the ray, is it able to be turned into a Krawk pet?
Nope, sorry. :\
Can the Turmaculus eat zapped petpets?
Yes, he does have an appetite for mutated petpets. :P
Hey look, I got an avatar!
