Not to be mistaken for the goldEN beetle, which has different moves and no SS version. Not that they bothered to change the appearance, or really even the name.

Found one rare yesterday in Tanaris. I can confirm that they do come as secondaries to Stripe-tailed Scorpids, Desert Spiders and Stink bugs at the very least.

 

Thought the rare I found was not a secondary.

Located this lil guy (Rare) as a second to a Striped Tailed Scorpid by chance!

 

I had battled many lil paws along the way trying to find one and today it happened.  While it's not a super battler - it does have Apocalypse!

Came here for some comfort after spending a couple of hours looking for my rare in Badlands.  Finally found one with a Spiky Lizard.  He spawns as a second to everything... so just keep killing!

Found my rare right outside of Uldaman cave entrance in Badlands.  It was paired with a rare black rat as well.  There were 3 battleable pets in this area (right near the wooden cliff walls) @ 42,10.  One was un-battleable, I think because it was stuck behind the wood.  The other two were fine and one was my rare!  I searched for days off and on in Tanaris and it took just 30 mins in Badlands.  It happens a lot to me like that...see my comments on "Chicken" too.

Found mine (rare) just outside Thistleshrub Valley as a second with a Stinkbug (also most likely rare).  4th fight with this critter in this area yeilding 1 common, 2 uncommon and 1 rare.

I managed to capture an uncommon out in Badlands, however most of what I see out there are poor quality, and its only been a handful I have seen. This was about 30 or so mins of farming out there for the various critters that could be found.

 

I did managed to also find some in the excavation site, but all those down there were of poor quality.

I got mine at Lost Rigger Cove. There were 2 of them that I saw. Not sure of respawn times.

Be careful, he's a bit squishy for a lvl 16 pet.

-NOTE -
