Got my from a Searing Hatchling right outside of Ony's lair!  Was actually hunting after a rare Spawn of Ony and just killing the hatchlings if I happen to come upon one.  On my 25th kill I was surprised with a Dark Whelpling!

I was farming the Emerald Whelpling forever then gave up, came to Dustwallow Marsh to level some pets and decided to kill some of the things that drop the Dark Whelpling and got it on like the fifth or so one!

Caught this after a little over 3 hours of grinding. Was farming the whelps in the Wetlands, right near where I farmed for the Crimson Whelping is a line of four whelpings on the top of a small hill that hte orcs sometimes come and capture. I farmed these as they have a fast respawn time. By the time I'd cleared the line the respawns had happend.

Badlands farming (on Kirin Tor) dropped after ~250 kills.  Very happy :)  Now for the others!  Wish me luck.

Finally! Was going to give up after 300 tries. Got it at 256. Lots of skins to sell too. Now time to level this bad boy up.

 

-- Update ---

I think you might be able to get more than one if you are nuts enough to spend the time. I killed a few more and my add on started a new count for me. I believe if you could only have one it would not count again because I have tried that on other pets.

Farmed this in Wetlands, got it the first day on my 516th kill, was pretty lucky, though it took about 4 hours to get at lvl 100. They do spawn very fast, i just went up and down one side of the area without any trouble.

@ thunderburke. No. I am A level 100. Somehow I got lucky and got the Crimson, Emerald, Azure, and bronze all tonight. I did however notice that when the NPCs start spawning faster and dropping better loot the pet is soon to follow

i haven't read this but have a theory and would like to see if anyone thinks this aa well.  Reading through this makes me wonder (i may be just out of the know as well ..lol). Does your level affect the drop rate.  For instance higher level less chance?

Hopes that someday it can grow up to destroy villages, just like mommy.
