i can confirm Foonbaba's statement:
often found as secondary pets when fighting scalded basilisk hatchlings
killed ever mob and kritter in the cave dozens of times - no spawn.
i left an alt at the cave on watch and logged in frequently - day and night.
finally got one (a rare to boost) today at about 11 AM.
after killing dozens of giraffes, gazelles and any battlepet i could find in the southern barrens - as they are supposed to spawn with the barrens giraffes which share a spawntrigger with the gazelles - i found a lonely, parentless calf.
it was about high noon and good weather
