23.05.12 (again) Magical Pirate Krawk Plushies are just over 1 million Neopoints?? That is insane. I need to figure this out. This is AMAZING. I will update the guide when I investigate further. I am so behind!!
23.05.12 Oops, I forgot about this for a year again, didn't I.... well, problem with coding in chrome has been fixed thanks to Snook pointing it out! Also decided to finish all my pixel adoptables for some reason, but can't really complain, uploaded all the random extra ones I made too, and the alternate versions! Couple of adds in the Krawk Directory, and also removed some broken adoptables. Let's hope I keep updating this more!!
25.04.11 Wow, look at me! Second day in a row! Managed to update the Krawk Directory part of the page, and the Petpet version. All Krawks have been moved to the right colours if repainted, removed if frozen etc. Random observation.... Most of the moves were to Camouflage! That colour is totally awesome, so I'm not surprised!
24.04.11 Been two years since I've actually done anything to this page.... and because I cancelled my Premium access, I lost all my email updates.... sigh. Going to try and see if I can get them back somehow. But for now, as soon as someone neomails me, I'll put you in the Krawk Directory!
16.04.09 Krawk Day! Didn't make the spotlight but The Tail of the Krawk is very good ^__^ Also... Ice Krawks?! Urgh, c'mon TNT, how could anyone risk their Krawk trying to get THAT colour??
15.04.09 Adding a load of absolutely amazing Krawks to my Directory section ^_^ Thanks for the submission everybody!
14.04.09: Updated the whole page, now we have an up-to-date list of Krawk items, plus all the new images of Krawk, and a new Krawk Directory, plus lots more! Fingers crossed for Krawk Day Spotlight!

Krawk Island was first discovered on the 17th of April 2001 when a pirate captain was spotted in Maraqua. The Krawk Neopet was later discovered on the 10th of January 2002 to the delight of Neopians wanting that slightly different and rare reptillian Neopet. In fact, the Krawk Petpet was a released as a normal petpet before this all happened on the 3rd of April 2001, and it is actually a Tyrannian Petpet!
Now this is the question I have been asked hundreds of times, along with every other Krawk owner in neopia, how in Neopia do you get a Krawk?? There are
The krawk petpet has been out for ages, but when a new land was released, Krawk Island, you were able to transform these special petpets into the fully grown Krawk neopets.
First thing you have to do is buy the petpet, like one of the ones above. You can get them in Normal (Green), Blue, Red, Yellow, Pink, Brown, White, Orange, Cloud, Halloween, Rainbow, Grey, Pirate, Faerie and Plushie. The colour which they are as a petpet will be their colour when they transform. Eg. a Faerie Krawk Petpet will turn into a Faerie Krawk Neopet.
I was lucky as I bought mine when they were 350k-400k.
Once you have the petpet, you have to give it to one of your pets. (Note: You can only have a maximum of three pets to get another neopet Krawk, as the petpet is made as a totally seperate NEW pet. If you have too many, make it on another account or abandon one of your current ones).
One problem with transforming a krawk petpet into the neopet is that you don't know what gender it'll be. Some say that if it's on a female, it'll be a female too, but mine turned out to be a male, so it's totally random, as confirmed in the NT here.
Most people get around this by giving the petpet a name which will be good for both male and female, and keeping it a colour which it doesn't matter what it is.
When you are there, you will see that your krawk petpet is hungry, and it gives you the option to feed your krawk. It should look like the picture below:
If you have done something wrong, like your pet doesn't have a unique name, or your pet is not the active one, you will only get the picture below:
When you click on "YES!" an alert box will pop up asking if you are sure you want to feed your petpet.
The one problem I had, was the gender as I explained above. My lovely faerie female krawk... turned out to be male. And the only way to change him back at the time, without using the lab ray was by buying a special potion called a Strange Potion.
This potion is extremely hard to get hold of so it may take a while, but I found one in the auctions. The problem with auctions is that they can be extremely difficult to win, and sometimes you have to get up at odd hours in the morning to make sure you get it. I managed it at 6:20am and here's the result.
The potion costs millions of Neopoints now, inflation really has hit everything hard.
The good thing is there is another way now to change a pet's gender IF you have access to the Secret Laboratory Ray on your account. All you have to do is refresh here and you should get him as a challenger. Then battle him and as one of the side effects he changes your pet's gender!! Watch out though... he can deal some nasty damage when he wants to X.x
Some people have managed to zap a Krawk petpet through using the Petpet Laboratory ray! But I have some bad news for you... I'm afraid they won't turn into adult Krawk neopets!! They disabled that quick =( Here's a picture of a Zapped Krawk petpet with an original name being taken to the Fungus Cave so you can see it won't work. Thank you so much my good friend Em for the screen shot ^^
This is the second and slightly less expensive way, as long as you use a Krawk Transmogrification potion and not a Blue Krawk Morphing Potion or similar, as usually the coloured morphing potions are more expensive.
Krawk transmogrification potions cost usually around 10 Million Neopoints on the trading post, you might find one in the auctions for cheaper. Or you could be lucky enough to get given one by Dr. Sloth, like what happened to me.
All you have to do with the potion is give it to your neopet. You can give it to any species of neopets, it doesn't have to be a krawk to start with at all.
The good thing about this is that you can choose your krawks gender straight away, as you've created the pet to exactly the gender you want in the first place, so you won't have to use Strange Potions or anything, and your Pet will fit it's name straight away.
Now, quite a lot of people don't like the look of the mutant krawk, so say they would never use the potion. But... you can just paint your pet!
Most people get a cheap paintbrush like a Yellow or Green one and paint their pet as soon as they use the potion, or maybe use a Turnip Tonic to change to a random basic colour, so straight away it's a Yellow or Green Krawk Neopet. I had a colour in mind for this one, so I painted her Striped.
You could buy a Magical Plushie to change your pet into a krawk too... The one problem with this is that the plushies are extremely rare, and are more expensive than the Krawk Transmogrification Potion. So usually these are more for the collectors, not for people who want a Krawk Neopet.
****UPDATE**** When did this happen, Magical Pirate Krawk Plushies are 1.1 million?! This is amazing! I'll update when I figure out how to get them.
The third and last way to get a Krawk Neopet might be the least expensive, but is extremely hard to achieve.
First of all you have to have a complete lab map, ranging from 9k for the cheapest piece, to nearly 200k for the more expensive ones, totaling from 700-800k in price, depending if you find any pieces in random events or cheap in the shops.
After that it's simple. All you have to do is zap the pet you want to turn into a krawk and hope for the best! Even though it is extremely rare, and I haven't managed to zap one in the 6 or so years I've been using the lab ray on more than one account, and I haven't seen solid evidence of it ever... It could happen ^^
Points to remember: You cannot adopt a limited edition pet, like a Krawk, if your account is under 4 months old! This rule also applies to certain colours of painted neopets, and above a certain level. But Krawks cannot be adopted AT ALL, no matter what level or colour is, by anyone's account younger than 4 months.
This is a very new way of getting a Krawk, as in the past TNT have been extremely against trading pets. But now with the safe transfer options, there's no risk involved with trying to catch krawks in the pound!
There are two options for trading. One is to just receive the pet through a one way transfer, and the other is to do a direct swap with the pet you are trading for. Obviously to swap is a lot safer to do, but difficult if the pets are wanted on different accounts.
As a general rule, Krawks are very sought after, as they always have been, and are usually traded for a restricted pet of equal rareity, Draiks for example. Also, Unconverted pets (meaning, pets which are still in the "old style" artwork) seem to be a popular trade for Krawks. But as I said above, it really does depend on how much the person likes what you're offering.
