Got mine at about 7pm server time right after I logged in to check which is probably peak time, now I just need to stone it.
This is my strategy for most of the harder to get pets with slow spawn timers. I would really suggest that if you have multiple characters, esp alts that you don't play much to just park them in various spots and log in and check. I see people camping and sitting for hours at a time, and it just feels like such a waste.
This is how I got my rare lofty libram, as well as my Minfernal. All of the new pets released with 5.1 are difficult to get and overly farmed, so this strat has worked to save me from pulling my hair out, and still getting what I need.
Another tip I have found useful is to log in at odd hours, if you get a chance. Early mornings seems to be my best time to get the most chances with overly farmed pets. I got my rare Spawn of Onyxia at 4am when MoP first released and everyone was camping it.
