Turmaculus sometimes eats Petpets.

The Turmaculus is a gigantic Turmac and the king of all Petpets. He was first introduced on September 4, 2002. Legends say that the Turmaculus' gigantic appetite caused him to continuously eat and grow until he was so large that he could no longer move. He can now be found in Meridell, where he sleeps 23 hours a day.

The Turmaculus serves as a daily for those users who have Petpets. User can have their Petpets attempt to wake up the Turmaculus in order to earn exclusive items, Neopoints, and other prizes. User should use caution while waking the Turmaculus, since he will occasionally eat a Petpet, causing it to disappear forever.

Waking the Turmaculus

The Turmaculus can only be woken up during one randomly-selected hour each day. Users can attempt to wake up the Turmaculus outside of this time window; however, they will always fail in their attempt. In order to wake up the Turmaculus, the user must first ensure that their active Neopet has an attached Petpet. Next, the user must select a method for awakening the Turmaculus from the available drop-down menu. It is unknown if the selected method has any effect on the outcome of the awakening attempt. There are ten available methods:

  • Bang Pots and Pans
  • Blow Your Nose
  • Dump Cold Water on Him
  • Hit him with Stick
  • Kick Him
  • Ring a Bell
  • Scream
  • Sing to Him
  • Sneeze
  • Tap Dance for Him


If the user successfully awakens the Turmaculus, one of the following outcomes will occur:

Better Than You

Turmaculus has been a contestant on Better Than You four times:

Date: November 8, 2007 It's a little known fact that, in his youth, the Turmaculus could roll like no other little Turmac. With all that energy expended, it's no surprise he's so tired these days. If you really want to wake him up it's suggested you challenge his old score. Oh look! That got a snort and a stomp of the foot from him... seems like you've gotten his attention. Good luck!
Game: Turmac Roll
Score: 3,350
Prize: Turmaculus Action Figure


Date: January 1, 2009 What's this? It looks like the Turmaculus is awake. He's stomping his foot and gesturing to that hilly area... perhaps we should follow? Ah ha! It looks like he's challenging us to a friendly match! Think you can beat the Turmaculus? If so, let's see what you got!
Game: Turmac Roll
Score: 4,000
Prize: Faerie Berry Recipes


Date: September 23, 2010 *CHOMP* Om nom nom... [Hey! You can't eat that! ...Okay, it looks like Turmaculus isn't actually that good at making the guests happy... so it's up to you to make it a good party for everyone!]
Game: Berry Bash
Score: 5,600
Prize: Turmaculus Pinata


Date: February 7, 2013 For once, Turmaculus is awake. The immense Petpet stares at you impassively, and your Petpet shakes in terror. From out of nowhere, dozens of berries throw themselves into the mouth of Turmaculus. It seems that it's good to be the king of all Petpets.
Game: Turmac Roll
Score: 2,900
Prize: Plumberry Sandwich


Trivia

  • During the events of both the Champions of Meridell and the Battle for Meridell, the Turmaculus was moved to a safer location, making him unavailable to users. A large, Turmaculus-shaped patch of dirt could be seen at his normal resting spot at this time.
