Pet tracker shows these all around Southern Barrens.  I just flew the whole thing, caught 2 poor cheetah cubs in the north, saw no Giraffe calves. 


On return south, saw a group of 3 full size Giraffes with a Calf pet following at (46,84), northwest of Bael Modan.  It was a poor, but I caught it anyway just in case.  On Kael/thas at about 8PM server time.

I consider myself very lucky, because at the second attempt I succesfully caught a rare one in Arathor-EU at server time 9:20. Two of them are just wondered near Vendetta Point (42,42). :)

Guess what? I found one! 3:30 am . Southern Barrens, was flying around and saw the usual adders and what not and all of a sudden there it was! Poor but hay after several months of looking I'll take it. Don't give up looking you will find one!

I'm curious if anyone has ever found this one as a *secondary* pet in a battle. Since it's so hard to find straight up, I wasn't sure if it ever spawned as a second.


(Didn't want to spend my hours trying, if it was a no-go!)

Took approximately 4 hours of killing all the giraffes as they spawned.  Finally showed up with Barrens Giraffe patrolling group 44,66.

Found a Common one of these tonight in the general area of 48.0 - 77.0


I can confirm what many of the other posts say;  they are definitely few and far between!  If you don't have a flying mount, I would recommend leaving this one for later or just enjoy the thought that you might happen across one while leveling a young character.  :)

Spent an hour looking for one of these.  Came back after the daily reset (5 am realm time).  Found one, but only one.  Mostly it's adders and prairie dogs in this area.

This one was a PITA-a pain in the ass-to catch. I was farming for hours trying to find one. But I did. They're almost always with the parents in the barrens.

While I was farming for lion meat in Southern Barrens, a lonely giraffe calf walked into my view. I already had a green one, so I clicked on it just out of idle curiosity, and maybe since it was basically asking to be bagged. Turned out it was a rare! I happened on three more within the next five minutes, but none was rare.

Just tamed mine 45.4  63.0  Shu'halo  16:14 server time. Two were up. The first I picked was poor, declined him. The second I picked was common and I got him. He'll do untill I can catch a rare, but at least I got one! Hope this helps and happy hunting!

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!

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