This pet comes in 3 sizes - small, medium, large.  The small is the same size as the Gryphon Hatchling.  Large is about twice as big.


Sizes work just like different colors on other pets and will stay consistent after taming.  Sizes are not related to rarity or breed.  If you find a WGH as a secondary pet, then forfeit to reset the battle, the size will reset so you can pick the size you want.


If you use Flock you can see all 3 sizes in the attack animation.

You don't need an alliance character to get this pet, they spawn randomly with other pets as second or third battle pet (of course only in Twilight Highlands). Good luck!

if your Horde their seems to be a bug where these hatchlings that appear in the alli bases and wildhammer are only attackable mobs (even with a pet icon above their head). they often appear in pairs when fighting twilight fiendling  and random singles when fighting other pets in the area. Edit: the double spawning with twilight fiendling seems to have been cut, they now spawn rarely as with other critters.

Got a P/S rare earlier today, and this guy is a Aqua destroying powerhouse.  If you are having issues with any Aqua pets, get one of these.

Can be tricky to farm the breed you want, there are a lot of breeds to chose from. P/P 341 power is a true powerhouse, and to me it was worth waiting for this breed.  It's basic 100% hit Peck move hits for 361(almost 500 on Aquatics). This combined with high speed, and avoidance in Lift-Off makes a very useful pet. One of my favourite birds.

Has anyone else noticed that there are variable sizes for these guys? I'm not sure if it's coincidence, but the one I caught from a primary spawn is almost twice as large as the one I caught in a secondary battle. My friends and I compared ours side by side and found them to be slightly different in sizes too!

They are definitely different sizes... I have 3 and when they fight side by side one is as small as a crab and the other is larger than my fawn.  Huge differences!

Found my rare as a secondary to a twilight fiendling right next to the battle pet daily.

I found one up by Kirthaven and (on my BE) was just able to get close enough to battle it but the only option I had was to kill it. I suppose those are alli only spawns. Just now while fighting a turkey an uncommon came up as a secondary pet.

As of 5.3 these little critters are definately not faction neutral as a primary. I main on Horde and was searching for rares in all round the zone when i saw my first hatchling as a primary near Kirkhaven. While it had the pet battle "paw" over its head my cursor was a sword and the only option to kill it. I relogged to an ally toon and got a lift to twilight highlands (toon is only 81) and i was able to battle as normal.

I second all those saying you can pick this guy up as a second. I expected, like many of the others, that he was only available as a first. Not so. Happy hunting! ^.^

Found them easy enough today in Thundermar and Kirthaven, but I'm Horde and it wouldn't let me battle them even though they have pet icons.  There was one hanging out by the flight path in Thundermar (which I killed trying to get it to battle) and two by the flight path in Kirthaven.  Back to battling other pets in hopes of getting lucky!

They are 2nd pets all around Kirthaven and Thundermar.

I am Horde and stayed out of the towns.

Horde can not battle the ones in the towns.

Rare at 61,9 and 50,24 within 20min of each other.

Just snagged this guy - didn't have to wait around or anything so I figured be good idea to share time/date/sever name for those who might need the info:



Tuesday 9:55 pm MST on Shadow Council Server. He was literally right in front of the flight master. 



I was a little bummed when I realized he would shrink to half the size of the other babies in the area once he was tamed. Also had to use my Flawless Flying Battle Stone to get him to blue, but I figure he's worth it :)

As a horde you can't battle this pet as a primery. You need to look for a secundary pet to capture. Near firebeard's petrol I found my s/s breed as a secundary pet against a twilight fiendling. Happy Hunting everyone (:

Got mine today.  Started on my BE Mage and couldn't battle it, only leave or kill it, so I switched to my gnomre rogue on the same server and caught him.  Makes me wonder if it is actually bound to the alliance side.

Just tried to engage several of these as Horde and it wouldn't let me, they were clearly marked with "paws" as engageable battle pets but it wouldn't.  Hopped on my Ally and battled them no problem.  Obviously this happens sometimes and sometimes doesn't.  The ones I were trying to engage were primarys.  Good luck.

Too afraid to attempt flying until thrown from a great height.
