Just got mine on Argent Dawn at 50.69, 51. It's poor quality but I found him as soon as I went north to look. Spawn time was 9:30 pm CTS

Found a few in Souther Barrens. Everytime I tried to battle one it would say Failed to create pet battle. I logged all the way out of the game and back in and still had the same problem. Going to send a tell to Blizz and see if they can fix this problem.

I tried farming this pet some time ago, to no avail for a couple of weeks until I tried that macro that Harliequinne stated below me.


So 12:16pm server/central time on Whisperwind, I flew around Forward Command as was suggested by other commenters. Killed the first giraffe targeted by said macro, and less then 10 seconds later, a giraffe calf pet spawned. To my absolute delight--it was a rare! So if you're having trouble, try it, it absolutely helps! Happy farming!

I took the advice of what a another person said, and used this macro:

/tar Dusth

/tar Giraffe

/tar Irradiated Roa

/stopmacro [noexists]

/run SetRaidTarget("target", 7)

Killed all the Giraffes I saw, and circled back around and got one! It is poor.. but I just want the pet for the time being, and I'll get around to getting Rares.

Giraffes and Zhervas share spawn locations. Near by lions will Dash at the spawn locations and kill whatever is there every few seconds. The dead animal rots in the sun for 5 minutes before fading and being replaced. Kill Zhervas, Giraffes and nearby lions to spawn new Giraffes.

Or do the Giraffes need to hang around to produce a family?

I searched for 8 hrs on a Saturday (afternoon to evening). Didn't find a single calf. Went back through the comments and read that they show up in the morning!  


Going in circles Sunday morning (5:30am game time) I found 1 Giraffe Calf and it was a RARE!  It was following a trio of Adult Giraffes.


Cords where I caught 44.82, 87.47 Southern Barrens.   They appeared to be following the path around the hill at the south end of the Southern Barrens!

BLIZ if you are gonna join multiple server groups together PLEASE please PLEASE increase the spawn rate to the point where at least occasionally you can see one spawn! 


I use the following macro to mark any spawn I might fly over and miss. Thanks to other posters who posted this elsewhere. Add any other /tar "the pet you are looking for here" to the top.


/tar Dusth

/tar Giraffe

/tar Irradiated Roa

/stopmacro [noexists]

/run SetRaidTarget("target", 7)

This pet came to my attention, so I went on a hunt, @ 7 am. After a search for four minutes, I spotted one, and this first one was a rare. Got it.. so I'm lucky, I guess.

Started picking up all the wild battle pets going zone to zone. Came here saw the girrafe went to southern barrens and found him in about two minutes right next to the Forward Command post. Poor quality but just grateful I didn't have to camp him!


Found 2 more NW of Ft. Triumph and 2 pathing between Dustwallow and Ft. Triumph.

Remember, Giraffe Calfs are cowardly and selfish creatures. The blood of a hundred souls will not sway them. However, eventually the denizens of the Southern Barrens will tire of the bloodshed and force the prey out of hiding. Kill every living thing.

If you cannot find this pet to capture, run around the zone killing the giraffe spawns until on does spawn. I don't know if looting them helps them spawn faster or not, but I was able to get one in less then 10 minutes after I started killing the giraffe's roaming around.

Back when I was very VERY new to pet battling I didn't know this but I had killed 2 of these to lvl up one of my pets. Now that I know about this and others it makes me so sad to think I did this :(. O well... live and learn.... and cry :P lol

Been looking for this guy off & on for a couple days. I didn't camp out or anything, but was starting to get frustrated. Finally today I re-read the last 20 comments & decided to check Forward Command, & there he was, wondering around the camp . Good luck to anyone else looking for him.  Dont give up! it helps to take your frustration out on the lower level mobs and regular critters roaming around lol. Now im off to sit around felwood for an eternity waiting for a minfernal haha

The barbaric centaur over-hunted giraffes for decades, but it was the tauren who saved this species from extinction.
