As part of the Lineage 2 Hellbound expansion the whole pet system got a major overhauling. Once a baby pet reaches level 55 it can be turned into an improved pet by speaking to one of the Pet Manager NPCs in various towns. Update: With Gracia 2.2 the pet buffs got adjusted once more. Therefor the list below now reflects the Gracia 2.2 settings. Great Wolf, Improved Cougar, Improved Buffalo, Improved Kookaburra
The Wolf evolves into a Great Wolf at level 55. Once reaching lvl 70 the Great Wolf evolves into a Fenrir, getting extra attacks and skills. Like Striders a Fenrir can be mounted when summoned. Baby Cougar, Buffalo and Kookaburra turn into Improved Cougar, Buffalo and Kookaburra. An improved baby pet can cast buffs on its owner:

Great Snow Wolf, Snow Fenrir and Red Dusk / Red Star / Red Wind Strider
Members of a clan that is in possession of a Rune or Aden Clan Hall can exchange their normal Wolf or Strider for a Clan Hall one. All they have to do is speaking to the Clan Hall Gatekeeper located outside the clan hall. A Great Wolf can be envolved into a Great Snow Wolf. A Fenrir turns into a Snow Fenrir, and Striders may be exchanged for a Red Star Strider, Red Dusk Strider or Red Wind Strider.
The Great Snow Wolf, Snow Fenrir and Red Striders possess unique skills that ordinary pets do not – the Great Snow Wolf can already be mounted at level 55. Their defense and mounted moving speed are higher than those of normal – non Clan Hall obtained – pets. At level 70 the Striders moving speed increases from 172 to 177.
If a player looses access to a Clan Hall the obtained pets cannot be used, but they can be exchanged again for the previous pets through the Pet Trader Mickey NPC in the Towns of Aden and Rune Township.
