Default Unanswered: Isn't a shark a fish???

I just adopted the shark, and even though he has a bubble around his head I never got the underwater room or the friend of fish badge.

I know there's some problem with the chicken not being counted as a bird for treetop rooms and friend of fowl badge, but some say its because a chicken doesn't fly. (Which they do btw) but come on! A shark certainly swims!

Has anyone else had this happen with the shark?

Well I had adopted many fish before my shark. A shark is a fish though. I'm sure that it is the same as if you were to adopt a Chicken as you said. You could try called ganz @ 1-866-webkinz

If you already had 10 or more webbies on that account, you won't get a room. But you should now have the ability to buy an underwater room from the room map.

A shark is a fish... but not a bony fish (most fish are bony fish). It belongs to an older group of cartilaginous fish. I don't think that Ganz would make such a distinction, so you should be able to purchase an underwater room.

Webberlily probably explained your problem. You must have more than 10 webbies and not get a room with your pet but you should be able to buy one.

Webkinz chickens must be the commercial ones that are too heavy to fly more than a few feet off the ground, but free range chickens can fly pretty high. Also the chicken came before the treetop rooms or any flying pets.

A shark should be considered a fish. I would call ganz. I'm still sore at them for not counting my turkey as a bird. Thats fine if they didn't want to give me a tree top room becuase turkeys don't fly or whatever. But making his psi a bed that can only be put in a tree top room or outside isn't fair. Now the poor thing has to sleep in his bed in the back yard since I can't buy a tree top room for him. Sometimes I don't know what ganz is thinking.

Thanks Webbrrlily, I checked and I was able to buy the underwater room, Still no badge though.
But I do like your explanation of why a shark might not be considered a fish.

For some reason the hummingbird on our account never gave us the bird badge either; some things just didn't get programmed properly. Call Ganz if it really bothers you that you don't have the badge.

I have a blue trigger fish.
Although it gave me an underwater room it didn't give me a "Fish" badge.

Any ideas ??

Thanks for that number pokemon, I keep losing it. I will give them a call Monday, more out of curiosity than anything else.

This makes sense. I'll have to check to see how long the whale has been out. Thanks for that tip.

I just checked and there doesn't seem to be pattern with the dates of release. While some are from 2008, there are also new ones, like my shark, which was released in November.
Here's the dates I have on the pets with problems (listed on this thread) It looks like random dates, and random pets affecting random accounts. Hopefully we'll find out what's going on Monday.

Chicken no rooftop tree room (April 200
Hummingbird no badge (October 200
Trigger fish, got underwater room but no fish badge (October 200
Turkey no treetop room, but bed psi is treetop only (August 2009)
Shark, no fish badge (November 2009)
