This is for people who have locations or TomTom, I found 5 sets of spawns starting at 44, 80 and walking to 44, 74 before turning around and repeating the walk.


Second set starts at 50, 77 and swings around to 47, 71 and swings back around.


Third set starts at 46, 77 and walks to 47, 60 and swings back around.


Fourth set starts at 47, 84 and swings around to 50, 80 and walks back.


Fifth set starts at 45, 88 and walks to 46, 76 and walks back.


There might be one or two more spawn points in the zone because I found the pet but no adults (50, 52),  (44, 87) and (45, 60) but the adults wasn't up and walking around that I could find.


I tried what another post said to do and only grab the pet and leave the Barrens Giraffe adults up and wait for the pet to spawn again, I waited over a hour and 20 minutes and nothing re-spawn.

I was sound asleep last night when my dreaming was interrupted by a voice in my head that basically said, "If you want the giraffe, get up and go now."


So, I did.



At 4 a.m. CST


I didn't see any babies...but I saw a childless pair of I shot them (RIP). 2 minutes later, a couple spawned with a baby in tow. I FINALLY got my "little" guy (who is twice as tall as I am, 'cuz I'm a gnome). I don't care that he's "poor" quality, because to me...he's simply priceless!

There is a currently a bug with the Giraffe Calf and the flight taxi. 


When you fly from Crossroads to Desolation Hold (using a flight master) you will see 5-10 of these. But when you quickly fly back to where you saw them, you will only find Prarie Dogs. I tested this multiple times and even used a few friends. I am guessing there is an issue with the phasing between the two zones. Sure made me think I was going crazy at first!

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.

Pain in the butt to find. Had to look through 2 servers to find one, and it only spawned after killing a bunch of adult giraffes around the zone. 


Found mine at 48,73 east of Desolation Hold. Was with a group of adult giraffes.

I could find none, so I killed every giraffe adult, with no small amount of guilt. A while later a calf showed up with two adults just north of Fort Triumph and I accidently killed it. A bit later two calves showed up with four adults at the Forward Command. I caught a green at least.

Yes there is, it's called battlepets-quality, from curse. A must have.

Today I found about SIX of these right after the server restart. 5 out of the 6 were Common, and one a Poor. I was so disappointed! I've been trying to track these guys all week.

After finding one and failing to catch it, I found a sort of system that worked well for me. Choose one area in which a few mobs spawn into. I chose the area just east of the road into Mulgore. Kill all the mobs which are not Giraffes, doing this will give a chance for more Giraffes to spawn.


Also, kill all the battle pets in the area and outside of the area. Keep in just the vicinity of your choosen spot and eventually a Giraffe Calf will spawn with one of the Giraffe mobs. Good luck!

Found two as soon as I got there - the first (poor) wandering around Forward Command. The second (uncommon) a little below Fort Triumph running around with a herd of adult giraffes! 


On Tichondrius at about 11:00 PM server time and I was the only one there. <3

While flying over Southern Barrens I saw quite a few of these guys.  Around 9:15 am server time in these locations - just west of Fort Triumph 2 of them following 2 big giraffes, just east of Vendetta Point, and by the little tents on the map of Forward Command, 2 north of Bael Modan following 2 big giraffes.  First one I had was an uncommon that I killed on accident. Then saw 5 poors and finally another uncommon that I'm happy with for now.  Happy hunting!

After spending a few days in/out of the Southern Barrens I have a good report on this animal; there is only one calf generated every 2+ hours and it appears North of Master Pet Tamer Cassandra Kaboom and South of the Overgrowth.  Be very careful as it is a low level pet, I killed the first one I assure all by accident...I was heartbroken!  There are players who stop by but I didn't see anyone hanging around like I is an EXCELLENT FIGHTER :)  Happy  Hunting

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.

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