Don't I wish. I have over 3000 on my main character and nearly 2000 on a second. I realize that for some people they aren't as easy to come by, but after they dropped the number you needed for the weekly quest and added them to pet battles I've picked up more than I could use in a year. I'd love it if they implemented some way to shed the excess, even if it was just for a little extra gold. It would have to be something small and nonexclusive, or people would be in an uproar saying "OMG, NOW I HAVE TO FARM MORE CHARMS!!"

Two or three seems to be about normal for most people, outside of some who are either more lucky or less. As to the type of stone, I don't think any particular type is more common than any other overall. You might have seen more aquatic, but for me it was one of the last types that I finished getting all in rare, along with beasts and flyers. Personally, I have humanoid stones coming out of my ears, with about 25 sitting in the bank on one of my alts, even after giving about a dozen away to friends and guildies. Undead and dragonkin stones were also pretty common for me, with 20 or so of each extra, while everything else is only sitting at between 5 and 10.
I plan on sitting on all these stones currently, figuring the next expansion will have a bunch of new wild pets that I'll be able to use them on. It's kind of sad that they haven't actually come out with more wild pets to capture as the expansion went on. Patch 5.1 had quite a few new wild pets, although I know they did that to try to fill out a few families that showed to be lacking during 5.0. 5.2 had a few show up on the Isle of Thunder, but no pet battles at all on the Isle of Giants. 5.3 didn't add any new zones, so I can understand it not having any new wild pets other than the Unborn Val'kyr, which was a nice bonus. 5.4 is adding the Timeless Isle, along with over 30 new pets. Pets from professions, pets that drop from rares, pets that drop from raids, and pets purchased by doing a special pet battle scenario. Yet I haven't heard much about new wild pets to battle, other than the possibility of another moth or two.
