I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THIS YET! Please if u found some good info about THIS PETS. Please post it here.
THIS IS DAMN WEIRD
Are Genpets Real animals? How?
Genpets are living, breathing mammals. Bio-Genica is a Bioengineering Company that has combined, and modified existing DNA to create the Genpets lineup. Genpets have blood, bones, and muscle; they will bleed if you cut them, and die if mistreated just like any other animal. The electronic components are only in the packages and are for basic life support, outside of the packages the Genpets are wholly organic.
Genpets are packaged like toys though.
Genpets are designed to be sold on retail store shelves, not traditional pet stores. This is why they are packaged in plastic.
How are Genpets made?
The original prototype and breeding Genpets were created using a process called "Zygote Micro Injection" Thereafter the Genpets are grown in assisted breeding lab farms. Zygote Micro Injection is quickly becoming a favourable method to combine DNA, or to insert certain proteins from different species. Most notably it was used in 1997 to splice mice with bioluminescent jellyfish and has since been used to create glowing rabbits, pigs, fish, and monkeys. Since then, human DNA has been injected into chimpanzees, spider into sheep, and now, Genpets have arrived.
Is bioengineering this far advanced?
In 2003 Human DNA was successfully combined with rabbit (and other animals), to create successful Chimera Hybrids. Read National Geographic for more information . While Bio-Gencia is still awaiting approval for worldwide distributionof the Genpets, Allerca already sells genetically altered cats.

How do Genpets stay alive in the packages?
While the Genpets™ hang on retail shelves they are in a chemically induced type of hibernation controlled by a protein in the packages’ nutrient supply tubes. This was a natural trait found in many seasonal animals that would normally hibernate in colder northern climates that has been added to the Genpet line. This also ensures comfort for the Genpets™ while they are on store shelves.
How do the Genpets breath in the packages?
There are vent holes on the side of the package that allow filtered air to pass.

Do Genpets feel pain?
Yes. However the Genpets have limited vocal chords so they will not create a large amount of noise when disturbed.
What if I go on vacation?
The same protein that keeps the Genpet dormant on store shelves can be supplied at anytime during the life span of the Genpet making care for the pet incredibly simple.

Do Genpets show emotions?
Yes. This is part of why we have colour coded the Genpets. They come in seven different personality types. Each personality type shows slightly different emotions.
Do Genpets Talk?
Genpets have limited vocal chords for the convenience of parents. However, they do make some sound.
Do Genpets grow?
Genpets come fully-grown in their packaging.
Where can I buy a Genpet?
We are currently getting the Genpets approved for resale, as well as securing retail opportunities. No public release date has yet been set.
When will the Genpets be available for purchase?
As soon as possible!
How much will Genpets cost? (msrp)
This has yet to be set; however, we feel the Genpets will be very competitively priced.
How long do Genpets live?
Genpets come in two basic configurations, 1 and 3 year models. See our Meet section.
Do Genpets require batteries?
No, the Genpets are living animals. The power source used is only for the life monitoring devices within the package.
Do Genpets come out of the packages?
Yes, after purchase Genpets can be removed from their package; we will soon be doing a photo shoot to make this more clear through the website. Think of Genpets as living dolls. Genpets are designed to move more like a newborn human child, thus their range of motion is rather limited.
Do Genpets grow hair?
Very Little. Genpets only grow a small amount of hair under their armpits and are still allergen free.
Do Genpets bite?
Genpets should not bite, however Bio-Genica does sell the tooth remover kit.
Do Genpets open their eyes?
Yes, upon removing a Genpet from the package the pet will slowly wake up over the course of approximately 20minutes.
Do Genpets recognize their owner?
Yes. Upon waking up a Genpet will bond to its owner and recognize that person for the remainder of their lifecycle.
How are the personalities controlled?
The Genpet feeding packs are color coded and specially formulated with a custom drug mixture that can be used to control the Genpet, much like human drugs can such as Ritalin or Lithium and other behaviour modifying drugs. Thus we can calm them, or stimulate them without extra tampering to the DNA structure.
Do Genpets walk on two legs or on all fours?
As stated, Genpets have limited mobility and react more as an infant child, expect a Genpet to 'wiggle' more than it will crawl.
Do Genpets defecate?
As Genpets produce little waste, and therefore also require only sparse feeding making them a perfect pet.
What, and how do you feed a Genpet?
Bio-Genica, as well as retail partners, sell a special nutrient pack for the Genpets that need only be administered once per week.
Can Genpets reproduce?
No. The consumer Genpets cannot reproduce.
Do you have a reseller network?
Yes. If you are interested in becoming a reseller, please complete our Reseller Application form and a Bio-Genica representative will contact you shortly.
Why haven’t I seen any commercials for Genpets on TV?
As Genpets have not yet been released, we have not begun our marketing campaigns.
Can I obtain a sample Genpet for review or for feedback?
Unfortunetly not. Due to legal limitations we cannot send out samples of the Genpets.
Why is there a forum for Genpet owners if Genpets are not yet for sale?
A select number of Genpets have been released to Bio-Genica employees for Beta Testing. This is not a public release.
This is the main site. There r lots of things to learn about them.
