Dolphins, seals, manatees, whales... they act and look like fish, but they are mammals. They have lungs and they hold their breath under water. They can drown.
Sharks are a very ancient form of fish. There are two kinds of fish: cartilaginous and bony fish. Most fish are bony fish; but sharks and rays are cartilaginous. That means that all their bones are soft like the cartilage in your nose or ears. But they are still fish: they breathe through their gills. They don't have lungs.
Another comment on the treetop rooms for birds - I believe it says that FLYING pets get a treetop room, not all birds; accordingly, the bat gets a treetop room, even though it's a mammal, and non-flying birds do not. It would be rather silly for the penguin to get a treetop room... But they should give you the bird badge.
A shark is a fish but some webkinz do not come with badges.I did not my friend of feline untill i got my 2nd or 3rd cat. Also I think that you have to buy the underwater rooms. Hope this helped!sSnowball21800
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?
You probably should contact Ganz. It'll fix things maybe
I think Ganz just wanted birds to actually be birds like a Chickadee or a Blue Jay, and a reason not a type of bird that .... (Can't think of reasons, LOL)
Just like the Penguin. It is a bird, and it cannot fly. You wouldn't count that to get a treetop room because they don't live like other birds, they are from cold areas.
But a shark is a fish, and they do swim. I don't know..... I think they're suppose to give you a free room, but I think I heard before if you had registered other fishes you don't get the free room? Not sure, but you can also buy one, does it show when you click on "Buy" to get an Underwater Room?
A shark IS a fish, but this is probably because of the following reasons:
1. If you have over 9 pets- you don't recieve a room/treetop room/underwater room, instead you recieve extra kinzcash. 2. What they mean by "Friend of the Fish" is that when you read your pet's profile, it tells you who their best buddy is. (i.e. "My best buddy is a Basset Hound", which means you would recieve the "Dog's Best Friend" Badge.)
If these do not apply to you & your account, then you should contact Ganz.
Hope this helps answer your question!!! This is NOT true. To get a 'friend of' badge, you need to have that type of animal. If you did not get a 'Friend of' badge for your first type pf that specific pet, call Ganz 1-866-WEB-KINZ and speak to a representative. They will help you to clear up this issue. *Dixiecup*
I thought, in order to get those badges, you had to have more than one of that particular pet. I have a whole mess of cats and a bunch of birds all living together. It is mass hysteria, but I also got badges. I am not sure one pet will earn you the badge, but I am uncertain. I hope it all gets sorted out!
Yeah, it is a fish. I am not quite sure why you didn't get the badge...maybe as SnoopysGirl said, you need to get a bunch of fish pets FIRST to get badge(s). (: Hope it all works out and you find out an answer!
