This is one of several raptor companions introduced in patch 3.2. Upon its initial release, this pet dropped from Takk the Leaper, a rare spawn found in the northeastern Barrens roughly every 4-6 hours.

As of patch 3.3, the Leaping Hatchling became a lootable item from Takk's Nest.

This pet will occasionally leap to its owner's feet.

justfound mine at 10:09 relm time(trollbane). I have pet tracker addon, and the nest was exactly where the icon said it was. Maybe I was lucky.

Found the nest at the NW spawn point literally seconds before another player showed up from the opposite direction! I checked all the other spawns just in case, and ran into Takk the Leaper (named rare raptor.) I wonder if the nest respawn time is tied to the rare spawn being up?

I found mine like this:  Start from Nozzlepot's Outpost, then go East slightly (not down the hill).  There is a wide grassy path that goes Southeast and skirts the eastern side of the mountain.  I found the nest behind the first large tree on my right.  I went back a few minutes later, and the nest is gone.  I don't think the nest is always there, and I get the idea that it spawns in different locations around the area.  Tak was further south along the same path.

Just got mine today at 64.1 / 23.1!  I figured out where all of the coordinates were that everyone posted and circled the trees looking for it.  I found it in 5 minutes thanks to everyone's help.

I just found this one today. I installed TomTom and found out i had been looking at the wrong trees! I did a couple rounds and did some mining...  all of a sudden there was the nest! 62.8, 20.2 - Good luck to all... it was fun looking for this one!

 

I searched the following trees that are mentioned in previous comments:

58.2, 22

61, 19.8

62.8, 20.2

64.2, 23

65, 28

After deciding to seriously look for these raptor pets, I installed the TomTom add on via Curse and it has made all the difference as I'm really bad with directions. Used this TomTom macro based on the comments here and searched under the trees:

 

/way 58 22

/way 60.92 19.86

/way 62.52 20.22

 

Found Takk's nest after my fourth look (my mage camped this area for a day). 

 

Just got another hatchling for hubby so two today! Found this one at: 64.09 23.01

Found at 58, 22 at the base of a big tree, just south of that dark pool on the map (The Sludge Fen). Was flying around the area for a half hour or so in queue for a random when I found it ... had killed Takk about 15 minutes earlier, but in a totally different spot. My queue popped a couple minutes later too, so lucked out on timing!

This is my absolute favorite pet, and I'm glad to say that I own him. My boyfriend actually ended up finding the nest and getting the pet for me because we were looking for it. The tree was a little bit hard to find, but once you're in the area, it's sort of on top of a climbable mountain, if that helps anyone. That's what was stopping me from actually finding him until I was told that I had to climb a bit to find the nest beside the tree.

Best way to farm this guy (as Horde) is to link your hearthstone to the little area to the north (Nozzlepot's Outpost), then skim down the tree spawns whenever you go to visit Orgammir. 50% of the time I check I come across the nest, so it makes trying for him much easier.

This little guy has startled me on more than one occasion when something just suddenly whizzes by my head. I always forget I have him out when I do bring him out! lol

So I have been wondering, Will this pet disappear along with the Razzashi hatchling when Cata comes out? I can't imagine Takk the leaper frolicking happily around anymore when the barrens is ripped in two. Perhaps the majority of the raptor pets will be replaced with the new skeletal model?

This offspring of Takk the Leaper is incredibly agile and can maneuver through difficult environments with ease.
