Found out that poor pets really do make poor battle pets.

Easy to find as secondary pets but hard to find as rares. Been hunting for a rare version for a few days now with no luck.
Got him along with a Humanoid Battle Stone out of the Legendary daily first day. Has some new pet talents that turn out to be a lot of fun in pet battles so he's a good one to level.
Wish I had done like others and picked him up. Hardest of the trainers to down so when you finish all four and get to choose one of the four upon completion choose this one.
Haven't seen any down inside the cavern except the tunnel leading down and outside. Found 5 so far with all five being poor quality. Might be a difficult one to get a rare of.
Can not be done solo with a mage. You can get him to freeze very quickly by just doing blizzard but no way can a mage do fast enough melee attacks to shatter him. Bring a rogue friend if you're a mage.
Will mirror the other comments. East of Tosley Station. Only found one out there when I went for him and was lucky to get a rare.
Easy to get because it seems they battle alone. I killed two. First was uncommon and the second one rare. Looks to be an interesting battle pet.
A number of pet tamers will still give you pet supply sacks as dailies after you complete the battle quests such as Grand Master Trixxy in Winterspring and Lydia in Deadwind Pass.
The drop rate on this pet is listed as 0.3% which is low but if you do all the pet dailies that drop bags every day that gives you a fighting chance and since generally one does those dailies anyway for the chance at stones it's not a horrible grind.
I have to mirror the other comments on how fun this guy is as a battle pet. His stats are a touch lower as you would expect with an uncommon but the fun factor is very high due to the unique battle talents. Will be the first pet I level from an uncommon to a rare when the patch comes out.
Cute but the Bandicoons and their cousins the Tanuki make the worst battle pets. Very weak abilities.
Not part of any of the safari achievements so a lot of people don't know he's about until they check their list of pets still not collected. East to get as he's all over in the Bamboo Wilds of the Jade Forest.
Likes to hang out with the Alpine Hares and other critters in Winterspring. I've yet to see him as a main creature but about 80% of the time I go after an Alpine Hare there I get one of these joining in so he's easy to pick up.
Earned the achievement for this today. Looks like he'll be an interesting combat pet. He doesn't come in the mail by the way. You have to log out and when you log back in he shows up in your collection.
Southern Barrens and you can't swing a cat without hitter them there are so many.
Got this about 10 am. There were about 3 inside the cave in Skull Rock.
Great battle pet against mechanicals.
Found one right out in the middle of the marsh. Was the only one in the area.
