Let me tell you about the Curious Oracle Hatchling. It is proven to be superior in every way to the Curious Wolvar Hatchling. Studies have shown that owners of the Curious Oracle Hatchling live longer lives, attract better mates, make more money, and above all else have better hygiene than their wolvar-loving counterparts. Instruction for use: Bring out once a day, run in circles and watch it hop around, knowing that you have indeed found the key to love and happiness - the Oracle Hatchling.

I love the animation when Baby Oracle catches a fly. But Blizzard should make also a different one... When Curous Oracle Hatchling is near Curious Wolvar Pup they should fight. But not fight to death - rather some adorable puppy wrestling with some cute sounds included. I wish they will implement something like that someday!

I like this pet solely because I like the Gorlocs. They're my top favorite WoW race for a number of reasons, though their overall likability and personable attitudes are the main reason. Of course, this also means that my least favorite WoW race are the Wolvar, especially the blasphemous Frenzyheart Tribe. The Oracles just want to be left alone, you jerks! Stop attacking their patrols and destroying their altars!

Stupid puppy-men...

My big mystery about him, is the question of how he came to be in my postbox. The post was send by him to me. Did he manage to sneak into the parcel? If so he is in for a surprise next year when his Wolvar nemesis should arrive in a similar box.

In the mean time he start taking lessons from the Squire on how to properly carry pennants. If he is good I might let him ride a pony.

And finally someone to take care of all those Aged Egg Yolks.

I'm pretty sure little Roo escaped the orphanage by mailing *himself* to me. That's ok, Oracles don't gnaw on you ankles constantly the way puppymen pups do.

This is one of my favorite pets because of this one video. It's the story of an oracle orphan left abandoned on the doorstep of the Lich King himself. Both hysterically funny and poignant - truly well done. "Can I call you Uncle Lich?" "Kewl! I wanna be a Lich King too!" I call mine Carmen just like he did. Oh, and I call him Uncle Lich now too.

the Northrend Childrens Week needs a 3rd pet, maybe a Tuskarr Child? with those Seaweed Warriors going around killing the Tuskarrs, there should be quite a large amount of orphans by now.

One word of caution:  Aged Yolk used against Apocolypse is instant death for those cute little guy; apparently a lesson I need to learn repeatedly.

  When I found out I could get an Oracle Hatchling I was thrilled! I was in a guild called Order of the Murloc at the time and while I couldn't have Lurky or Murky, I could have a murloc relative a Gorloc. The guild eventually disbanded but my Oracle Hatching remained and it reminds me of the Mrlgahalagahraga's we'd type as hello's and makes me smile.

As much as I love this companion, and he's part of my main team, Fridge Horror sets in when I realize I'm essentially training my adopted son to be a street brawler.

@Illumnati : The journal limit of 3 is not a mistake, it's just a very odd case. You are correct that you can no longer add any more to your journal once you have the curious oracle hatchling and curious wolvar hatchling, but people who already had more than one of either before the pet journal consolidation at the launch of Mists were allowed to keep them and can use more than one on a pet battle team.

The General Info tab indicates that you are allowed 3 of these pets in your pet journal. That is not the case. Any subsequent completions of the questline either with the same character on a following year or a different character during the same year has a different reward. You can only have one Curious Oracle Hatchling and one Curious Wolvar Pup in your pet journal. Also to note is that once you add the pet to your journal, there is currently no way to remove it.

Adding my vote up for this adorable little guy.

One tiny P.S. I'm not sure what about a bug diet gives him such bad breath but,  just  turn him loose on dragonkin, he wilts them like nothing I've ever seen.

This is such a cute little guy! All of the oracles speak like little children and it's so cute. So glad I got him from Children's week this year.

As of Children's Week 2011, the NR quests are working again, so if you picked the wolvar the first go round, now you'll be able to get this one.

The bouncy gurloc is a distant cousin of the murloc.
