Yes this is cageable. Seen a few on AH for 18-20K and they went fast. If you are not into PVP and have the extra gold, it might be worth it to buy one.
These are on AH but the price is not cheap, I have only seen this pet on my AH on Stormrage sever which is a major Alliance servicer only THREE times. I seen it for 95,000 and 120,000 and I just bought mine on AH this weekend for $ 100,000.
So if you do not want to farm this, plan on spending some major gold.
I finally got this beautiful While Carp after 3 or 4 days while fishing about one hour per day at Shado-Pan Monastery in Kun-Lai Summit. The skill level that I was using was 710 while fishing in and out of those Emperor Salmon Schools in the area. It came as a second to another fish using the Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm.
I had a higher level fishing gear on another character but decided to use the lower level gear character since he had the charm and it worked. I was around 850ish casts when this finally landed. But I had a friend who didnt have a charm and she got the white carp within the first few hundred casts, so it really is random.
While fishing for the Tiny Red Carp in Townlong Steppes at Fields of Niuzao lake that is west of Temple of Niuzao (35, 53) I caught this Tiny Blue Carp in the fishing of the day pool called Crowded Redbelly Mandarin.
So it is like killing two birds with one stone, fishing for the Red Carp and getting the Blue Carp..... still fishing at the same spot for the Red.
Caught after about 2 hours or about 400-500 casts with 750 fishing skill.
As I write this I have ran 3 toons through to this boss and I have yet to see it drop in LFR. Also I have a few characters on other servers, actually two of the largest alliance population in USA and I haven't seen this pet listed at all on AH.
Hopefully Blizzard will lower the drop rate, as of this date if you do get one of these pets, say a prayer and some thanks for being lucky!
Vanity pets should be made where any person who plays World of Warcraft can collect them and not just in the USA, China, Korea or where ever.
Not every glow fly has these as a add, I came across a glowfly with a roach/sea gull/rat/adder as a add or as a single glowfly with no adds if they are a level 4 and under.
Also you can catch these all now, POOR, COMMON, UNCOMMON and RARE!
Update 10:20 PM I finally gotten my rare after 5 hours, click on my armory link to view, it is in game!
EDIT: (IMPORTANT) IF YOU HAVE A HARD TIME AND NOT SURE WHAT LEVEL TO USE, if you have a Terrible Turnip use them, their first ability has a way to bring any level pet down to one hp without killing it, so it would be easier to kill. I used a lvl 11 Terrible Turnip and he had no problems with anything, including two level 10s.
I am not sure if this is intended or a bug, but once learn it is a UNCOMMON pet, but the armory is listing the pet as a rare.
Now sure if this is like the sapphire cub which is rare from the recipe and can become another color once learn.
So beware if you are buying one that is not already learn. Recipe is blue but in my case it came out something else after in my journal.
Well this is my 2 cents, in the Dry Hills area as everyone suggested, I had my timer on and I was there for 2 Hours (9 pm to 11 pm on Stormrage server) before I got one spawn to pop. (Poor)
I killed all the yellow non pet critters, I killed the non Harpy Critters pets, I even started killing the Harpies after 1 hour and I didn't get a single spawn.
Either this has a lousy spawn rate (same with the new pets in 5.1) or I was very unlucky, my best guess is to either get lucky and come in the area that no one else had in hours or park a alt here and log on once in a while or you can wait up to 2 hours looking for one to pop.
Level 4 Pet.
Edit: Not 2 minutes after posting this that I found another Harpy spawn, so IMO this is not chance they have a spawn timer I would believe of at least 2 hours.
Lofty Libram is the FIRST pet and the name you are looking for and sometimes the only pet or it can also have one add to the team. The pet does hit back pretty strong, so be prepare, I have seen both a level 6 and a level 7 Lofty Libram with the level 7 having the add with it.
Everyone is correct I found them around the outside of the crater in the town on both sides.
Spend over a hour in the small area of savage thicket and NONE spawn at all, none, zip and reading most of the notes below I think this pet either has a really long spawn timer or spawns only at night.
Maybe the spawn rate at night is better but 12:30 to 1:30 eastern (server) it was dead.
After the boss Lucifron (Straight across the bridge from the entrance), big corehound dog named MAGMADAR, soloed as a level 85 pally, level 90s shouldn't have any problem at all. The pet is a rare when it drops and this pet is RARE once you learn it.
Trying to find a rare from pets that spawn as a second is really awful and painful, so far all I found was it comes second from the Polly and Strand Crab.
I would go by the beach or shores as there are more stand crabs there, but the chances of finding a moth as one of the pets is like 1 in 5.
Edit: You won't find the mob as a add on the crab in the middle of the zone, you need to hit the beach area, I found a lot of crabs and moths as a second pet on Jaguero Isle, but it still seems like a 1 in 5 rate, trying to find a rare is pretty much luck.
If for some reason you kill the pet you are after you can try this little trick to get your pet group back to spawn with the same make up of the group. While IN the pet battle after you have killed your pet you wanted (UNLESS IT WAS THE LAST ONE STANDING) simply just LOG off. When you log off and back on, the pet group will be back in front of you.
***(Make sure you log off in the middle of the pet battle)
At that time you can try again, change pets or heal your pets. (Beware I did this in Winterspring with those tigers around) when I logged in, I seen the closes tiger go over and kill my pet group- first time I actually seen that in person) but normally this works 99.8% of the time.
If you think something is to close like a tiger and might kill your pet, take it out first just incase you need to do the 'reset'.
If you are looking for a higher level one, they are also in Twilight Highlands.
Here is where I found these while rare farming for this pet:
Found 4 spawns of this mob at 32, 57 (noth of ruins of Ammon) as the leader of the pack.
They are also the second pet from pet names Sidewinder, Tol'Vir Scarab, Desert Spider, Horned Lizard, Oasis Moth and Emerald Boa
If you are lookingfor the Leopard Scorpid, I did NOT find any from any Dung Beetle, Mac Frog and Locust pets that were by that name as first pet.
PS came across 2 sets of Dung Beetle with TWO RARE Dung Beetles with each battle around 33, 40 in case you were looking for some.
Finally found a rare with a sidewinder first pet and Leopard Scorpid as a add at 38, 8 top of zone to the west close to Obelisk of the Moon.
If you are looking for a RARE Fungal Moth, I got the place for you, Deepholm as you know SOUTH of the entrance at around 47, 83 called the Quicking Fields (all the way back on the top part) If you see Emerald shale Hatchlings you know you are in the right spot.
Kill the Emerald Shale Hatchling and the Fungal Moths comes up as a second, rare farming the Emerald Shale Hatchling I must have abandoned battle 4 times at least with the RARE Fungal Moth in the group. As of this date, but hopefully they can keep spawning like 1 out of every 4 or 5 attempts.
Also I Forfeit a few with a rare Twilight spiders also.
There are adds (second) to the following Pets that I found while rare farming these: Fire-Proof Roachs, Ash Lizards, Rock Vipers, Silky Moth, Nordrassil Wisp, Alphine Chipmunk, Death's Head Cockroach, Twilight Beetle and Elfin Rabbits.
These do NOT spawn with the Fire Bettles, if you see that name first and looking for a Grotto Vole you are wasting your time!
I finally found rare Grotto Vole off a Twilight Bettle at 27, 32 (Shrine of Goldrinn).
Rare farming this pet, found one in the cave as the named battle pet Skittering Cavern Crawler that connects Zangermarsh and Blage's Edge Mountain and two more in the other cave at that does the same thing, but they were only common and below.
So I took the advice to kill anything in the zone and I seen they come up as a second to the Rock Vipers, Scalded Basilisk Hatchings,but you will never find one on any Rabbits or Squirrels.
But I finally found 3 more in that same cave after doing a run of the zone and finally ended with what I came for.
Well I hate to say it Toomuchpc but I have been here from 5 till 6 PM until 15 after the hour and NOT ONE SPAWN, so maybe you have a better server or the time was good for you.
While rare hunting a Moccasin, I had a rare Swamp Moth add onto the Moccasin, so if you do not see a lot of battle pet Swamp Moth (and there isn't that many as their is), then try to kill to birds with one stone and search for a Moccasin also.
I made a macro for the Moccasin, but I couldn't for the Swamp Moth as there are other non battle pets named Swamp Moth also.
Like the below comment said, they were at Angor Fortress but I found mine BEHIND the Fortress at 43, 19 area. There was two King Snakes at that location.
Later on I found a few in the zone that tagged along with a Spiky Lizard, Gold Beetle and a Rattlesnake while rare hunting.
Edit: As I was going through the zone I noticed a lot of battle pets way on top of the mountain area, so if you do not see much down below, try higher up on the mountains! Loc 27, 25 found two more spawn points for King Snakes.
Grimlynn is correct there is a TON of them by Seredane in Hinterlands! Good Catch!
This is for people who have locations or TomTom, I found 5 sets of spawns starting at 44, 80 and walking to 44, 74 before turning around and repeating the walk.
Second set starts at 50, 77 and swings around to 47, 71 and swings back around.
Third set starts at 46, 77 and walks to 47, 60 and swings back around.
Fourth set starts at 47, 84 and swings around to 50, 80 and walks back.
Fifth set starts at 45, 88 and walks to 46, 76 and walks back.
There might be one or two more spawn points in the zone because I found the pet but no adults (50, 52), (44, 87) and (45, 60) but the adults wasn't up and walking around that I could find.
I tried what another post said to do and only grab the pet and leave the Barrens Giraffe adults up and wait for the pet to spawn again, I waited over a hour and 20 minutes and nothing re-spawn.
Only one spawns in the tree the last few days and I have reported the loc as bugged, logged on at restart today (Tuesday) and had the area to mysel.
A total of about 15 spawn when I logged in at restart, otherwise you might find one or two up unless someone else is camping the area and then you are pretty much sol unless you get lucky and spot one when they are /afk.
