I originally made a DK on an oceanic pvp low popl'n server to catch a minfernal which made it a lot easier to get. I forgot all about this toon until someone suggested doing this for this pet so I moved the toon to Borean tundra spawn point near Deaths Stand. I just logged in randomly and eventually got one on the pvp server. So I definitely suggest doing this for this pet too, it was good advice for me. I still flew around on my server looking but there was always other doing the same.Good luck
My suggestion is to just fight all battlepets you find in Twilight Highlands and get the rare as a secondary rather than trying to find primary spawns of these. They are hard to come by and in difficult locations and sometimes in locations subject to phasing issues. I found mine secondary to a twilight spider.
Follow Gwenolyns post in the Cradle of ancients, Uldum on a toon that has not completed the zone and you will save a lot of time rare farming. I also killed off any sets of 3 critters/battle pets that were not the horned lizard to promote more spawns and had 6 sets up to circle around. Being a phased area you also find noone else around as most cannot see pets in this area.
