The Draik ("drake") is a little dragon native to Meridell that is seen by many pet owners as a symbol of wealth due to their rarity and subsequent price. They are a special type of limited edition, where the main way to get one is by hatching a Draik Egg at the Draik Nest. While you can also use a morphing potion on an existing pet, you cannot get one from the lab ray or pet creation centre (not even on Draik Day).

A glitch back in 2002 when they were released led users to be able to create Draiks like non-Limited edition pets for a few days before The Neopets Team fixed it.

Draik eggs restock very rarely in a little shop called Merifoods for a high price. Draik eggs can also be acquired via The Forgotten Shore. Since the release of The Forgotten Shore, pirate Draiks have been become easier to obtain, massively deflating Draik egg prices and thus making them far less exclusive.
