Sources from PTR Pet Journal

Son of Animus - Drop: Throne of Thunder (Raid)
Living Sandling - Drop: Throne of Thunder (Raid)

Spectral Porcupette - Quest: "A Large Pile of Dinosaur Bones" on Isle of Giants
Stunted Direhorn - Drop: Isle of Giants
Sunreaver Micro-Sentry - Drop: Sunreaver Construct on The Lightning Isle
Zandalari Hatchling - Drop: Isle of Giants

Gusting Grimoire - TCG: Betrayal of the Guardian

Mountain Panda - Quest: Beast of Fable
Snowy Panda - Quest: Beast of Fable
Red Panda - Quest: Beast of Fable
Sunfur Panda - Quest: Beast of Fable

From wowhead news:
In addition, there is a new Pet Battle achievement, Fabled Pandaren Tamer, for defeating a new Elite Pet, and a new bag of pet supplies, Fabled Pandaren Pet Supplies. Elite pets are really tough pets, accessible via a quest, that are meant to be fought with your entire team.

So it sounds like the 4 pandas will work similar to the Pandaran Spirits. you beat the elite pet and get to choose one, and then you can do a daily for a chance to get another one in the special bag...

There are also a few new wild pets, all found on the lightning isle. None of them have new models (yet anyway).

Electrified Razortooth (Baby Croc, Elemental)

Elder Python (Blue Snake, Beast)

Swamp Croaker (Green Frog, Aquatic)

I hope the new Raid pets drop in LFR. I'll be pissed if they don't as I just stopped raiding this Xpac for the first time since Vanilla.

ooh that would be really nice! Or maybe if they acted like wild pets within the instance, since we don't need a full raid group to enter raids anymore!!!

Would also like to see more pets from old content and make another Raiding with leashes extension.. maybe a [Raiding with more leashes] and the prize would be a mini Malygos or something! lol

There's also a Thundertail Flapper. Elemental. Looks like a Bucktooth Flapper, except it's blue and has spikes coming out of its back and tail..?

So the Direhorn and the Hatchling are just going to be random drops off stuff from around the isle?

I'm not complaining*. I figured those would be the harder ones to get, like you'd have to track something down and kill it for a chance (like grinder).

*Yet at any rate. If the drop rate is anywhere close to what the drop rate was on the last drop from any random mob pet (Tol Barad Fox Kit), I'm sure I'll be one of many complaining in the future.

Yup, he's been in the journal since the first ptr build.

I have a feeling they'll drop from the new Oracle-style eggs. I got an egg from one of the Direhorn mobs on the isle, 3 days to go!

I also hope the pets in the raid are somehow simple to get, either inside or using LFR, as I have not even been doing the new dungeons let alone raids, since there is so much nice rep. gear and upgradable. Blizzard made the game fun again for individuals with this expansion.

Interesting. Is the egg unique by any chance? If so, that's a clever way to prevent over-camping.

Currently this appears to be part 4 of a chain that asks for progressively higher amounts of bones, going up to 10,000 for a mount.

I would think that the amounts of bones will be adjusted a bit.

I don't know. We've already had to collect 2000 tokens for the chance to find the pet in the latest patch on the live servers.
