Patch 4.1.0 | Posted: May 2, 2011
This pet is available for digital download exclusively from the Blizzard Store. It may be purchased using any major credit card. Players who purchase this pet will receive a code which may be redeemed on any WoW account. All WoW accounts (of the same region) under one account will have access to this pet. Codes may also be purchased as gifts for other players.

Prior to 7/31/2011, 100% of the $10 USD purchase price was donated to the American Red Cross's Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief efforts.

The Cenarion Hatchling raised over $1.9 million for charity.

As of January 6, 2019, this pet is no longer available from the Blizzard Pet Store. It was part of the "See You Later Bundle" promotion, and has since been "retired". Blizzard has stated that it might re-appear in the store at an undisclosed date in the future.

Between December 9, 2022 and December 13, 2022, players that linked their Twitch account to their Bnet account could earn this pet by watching WoW Twitch streams for at least 4 hours, making it temporarily available again.

Screech is a debuff against the other team and allows them the chance to swap out a pet who is not effected by the debuff. It is a choice of an extra 140 damage each turn. Rush on the other hand is your buff and allows you to either use Quills or to escape with Lift-Off depending on which seems most advantageous. Using Lift-Off while you are currently slower then the other player will make them hit first while you smack them in the face.

Just leveled this cutie with Chrominus & Dark Phoenix Hatchling. Wow what a team! They complemented each other greatly. What one had trouble with the others helped out. I thought they were best friends. Will be useing them again!

I'm grateful Blizzard didn't re-skin this. This is a pet I've loved since it very first came out, and I was finally able to get it. yea, there's a lack of effort on their part, of course. But that's what Blizzard does. Either way, I got a pet I've been coveting since the beginning, and I'm really happy about it.

I purchased this when it first arrived to help with the tsumami relief, I would love to know how they use the money. The pet is cute and for a while I had a glitch where it leveled up. Then that went away.

I think my volunteer work in Japan gave me an excuse to skip this pet.
I mostly skipped it because it's the same model as the Hippogryph Hatchling, a pet I already have.

As of 4.2, this little guy changed. They made him have sharper beak. It's now 35% less cute in my opinion. :(

I love pets and it's a great cause if you order before July 31st.
Nothing left to say.

I'm really excited to get this little guy. The sounds he makes are adorable too! I'm glad this is more affordable and in my price range.

Having purchased 4 of the cards at various points to get the Hippogryph Hatchling, I am thrilled they did this one. The donation is pretty amazing too.

As for the color, I couldn't care less. I am glad they offer the card pets at an easy to acquire cost. Make with Bananas and the Spectral Kitteh already! They have a different id (which is fine for my alts and my main gets "two" counts for the same pet) but they look just as awesome. Win/Win.

Well done Blizzard, Well done.
Regardless of what one thinks about the model for the Cenarion Hatchling. I purchased one without a second thought for the relief effort.

As someone who was born in Japan and who felt heartbroken watching all the footage from Japan, thank you for buying this! I will be getting one myself. It's OK to be a little upset that Blizzard didn't update the skin at all. I feel the same way! At least the names are different, yes?

I don't mind that this pet is the same as the one on the trading card; it's still lovely, and it's for a good cause. :) (I may be out of line on this but: I've seen complaints from people who purchased the TCG hippogryph from a reseller and are now upset that Blizzard is selling it in the pet store. The TCG redeemables were never meant to be resale items, so any exorbitant price paid to a reseller does not entitle anyone to complain about the current $10 price tag in the official store.)

I'm also upset by this. While I'm all for helping out Japan, and I did make the purchase, I feel this just killed the uniqueness of my Hippogryph Hatchling. I used to be able to call that pet and get so many whispers about it. Now it's just an everyday, run of the mill store bought pet. Blizz really needs to take a day or two and reskin this pet.

This one I didn't even think twice to get. As soon as I saw who it was donating to I jumped for my credit card. I always have been fond of that country and I wanted to help them in some way. I am glad I was able to.

In regards to the pet itself, I'm glad I got her. I knew I'd never get that pet from the cards (hence why she's in the excluded list) so when I saw this one I was squealing with joy. I don't think the price of the original will go down. I actually think it will go up.

Not yet the fearsome creatures they grow to in adulthood, the Cenarion hatchlings have an almost harmless appearance that has caught novice trainers of the Cenarion Circle off guard.
