Welcome to Flying Solo! Here you'll find a directory dedicated to the Unconverted Grey Pteris of Neopia as well as other winged Unconverted Grey pets. This site opened on Oct. 31, 2011, and is maintained by me. At Flying Solo, we can appreciate and keep track of one of the rarer UC Greys (Pteri) in Neopia.

... What? You're asking if we're talking about the same UC Grey pet? Of course we are! Not everyone has a taste for the loveliness that is the UC Grey Pteri, but for those who do, please join me in the praise of these elusive pets, as well as other UC Greys fitting into the winged-pet category...

In order to navigate this directory, please use the links on the left.

The Flock is a specific part of the directory, dedicated solely to UC Grey Pteris.

However, the other species of winged UC Greys can be found in The Troop.


Awwww, who can resist that charm?

How to get your own UC Grey...

Warning: an extremely UC Pteri-biased person wrote this next section.
*insert innocent smile here*

Unfortunately, you can't create your own depressingly adorable Unconverted Grey Pet.

Unconverted (UC) pets feature the old art of the pets before the conversion, which happened on April 26, 2007. This was done to make all the pets have a uniform pose that would make it easier to customize them.

What is this great Conversion, you might ask, and why do we talk about it as if it was a cataclysmic event that greatly changed Neopian life? Compare:

Converted vs. Unconverted Pteri

Here's a very informative guide discussing Unconverted pets and also features the Unconverted Pet images:

Remember - UC Grey Pteris (along with a few more of the winged UC Greys) are a bit on the rare side so you might have to wait a long time to see one UFA/UFT. Trading up is never easy and you might have to make countless self-bumped boards before getting a good offer. These Pteris aren't one of the most popular UC pets so they have quite a trading range. Like everything else, "value" is subjective though so you may find yourself trading directly for a Pteri, or just may not have enough Neoluck so even if you have a VWN UC Plushie Hissi, you still don't get offered a Pteri (oh, who am I kidding?! *insert eyeroll here*).

Applying for pets may be a fun hobby or the bane of your existence (like in my case). It's not for everyone. You WILL have competition when it comes to UC pets so it's always a good idea to exert extra effort in your application. Be sincere, don't forget to take care of the pets you own, have fun, and be polite. If you don't get the pet, be happy for the person who did (or at least try not to send him/her tons of hate mail). Remember, this is a fun game, but there are real people involved behind these pixels.

Adopting an Unconverted pet from the Pound/Pound Release may be as rare as winning the Neopian Lottery or getting a Draik Transmogrification Potion from Dr. Sloth. Some people tend to lurk at the Pound at around 8:47 NST (or 9:47 NST during daylight savings time) since they have noticed that batches of PR pets are being released around this time every day (both AM and PM). You might even find "PR waiting boards" as well as "Pound Surf" boards at the Neopian Pound Chat, which could help you keep track of the PR pets you're stalking or give you an idea of what other interesting pets are in the Pound at the time. Remember that some of the pets cannot be adopted by accounts less than 4 months old (Neopets rules), and always leave space for the pet you plan to adopt.

UC Grey Pteri images...

... Help me find more Grey Pteri images and please mail me the URL? I searched most of the Caption Contests, Neo Backgrounds, Advent Calendar, Gift Tags, and Neogreetings but have yet to see ONE image of a UC Grey Pteri (there are fanart, though, as you can see). (T_T)

Gift Art for Cymru

Something else you'd like to see on this page? Please mail your suggestions/comments to me - jo_9tails.

Special thanks goes to a few of my lovely bunch of Neofriends who have weathered through my whining and venting throughout the making of this Directory. Without you, I'd still be stuck with that horrid premade layout-tweaked petpage. Or worse, the generic Neo-generated one. (O_O) Thank you Emily, Calico, Luna, and Melon! *hugglesquishes you to death*

I also want to take this opportunity to thank Dev for mailing me a handful of UC Grey Pteris she knows of; without her, I wouldn't even get started on this page. *hugglesquishes her adorable Skeith, whoops, I mean her* (^_^)
