Remember those cute little croc pets you could
fish up? In Patch 5.2 a new pet; the carp, has been introduced as a
potential catch for the fishermen among us. Sure carp don't sound cute,
but once you lay your eyes on these tiny beauties you will almost
certainly want them for your very own.

Tiny Blue Carp

The Tiny Blue Carp can be fished up using the
Fishing profession in any waters found in the Townlong Steppes or the Vale
of Eternal Blossoms. The carp can be used as a Battle Pet and is able to
be obtained by both Horde and Alliance players.

Tiny Green Carp

Those seeking the Tiny Green Carp will need to
fish the waters of Krasarang Wilds, The Jade Forest, or the Valley of the
Four Winds. Fishing is required to catch this pet. The Tiny Green Carp can
be used as a Battle Pet and is available for both Horde and Alliance

alt="Green Carp" />

Tiny Red Carp

Like its colored brethren, the Tiny Red Carp
requires players to have learned the Fishing skill. After the skill is
learned this little beauty can be fished up in the waters of the Dread
Wastes, Kun-Lai Summit, or Townlong Steppes. This pet can be used as a
Battle Pet and is available to both Horde and Alliance players.

alt="Red Carp" />

Tiny White Carp

The Tiny White Carp is the last of this fishy
quartet and like all the others requires the player to have the Fishing
skill before it can be caught. Once Fishing has been learned, players can
catch this pet in the waters of the Kun-Lai Summit. This pet can be used
as a Battle Pet and is available to both Horde and Alliance players.

For those of us who like a little more grind
to obtaining pets, Patch 5.2 has introduced a slew of pets available only
as drops from various places around the world.

Ji-Kun Hatchling

The Ji-Kun Hatchling is one of those pets that
is so ugly that it is actually cute. To make this ball of ugly
adorableness your very own you will need to defeat Ji-Kun inside the
Throne of Thunder and then cross your fingers that one of these pets
drops. This pet has the chance to drops in all variations of the Throne of
Thunder (LFR, Heroic, and Normal). The Ji-Kun Hatchling can be used as a
Battle Pet, can be traded, and is available to both Horde and Alliance

alt="Ji-Kun Hatchling" />

Son of Animus

Perhaps unsurprisingly this tiny little robot
comes from a boss called the Dark Animus located in the brand new Throne
of Thunder. The Son of Animus can drop on all versions of this raid and is
also able to be traded and used in Pet Battles.

Spawn of G'nathus

Much like the Son of Animus, the Spawn of
G'nathus comes from its namesake; a giant purple eel called G'nathus. The
eel and his spawn can be found around Shan'ze Dao in the Townlong Steppes.
This mob can be quite difficult to defeat, so you may want to bring some
friends. The Spawn of G'nathus can be used as a Battle Pet, can be traded,
and is available for both factions.

Sunreaver Micro-Sentry

If you've ever wanted one of those cool robot
Sunwell guards for your very own, now is your chance. The Sunreaver
Micro-Sentry drops from Haywire Sunreaver Constructs on the Isle of
Thunder. These mobs are rare spawns and can pack quite a punch. The
Sunreaver Micro-Sentry can be used as a Battle Pet and can be traded.

Zandalari Anklerender

These super cute little dinosaurs are random
drops from high level Zandalari Dinomancers found on the Isle of Giants.
These mobs also have the chance to drop three other models; the Zandalari
Footlasher, Kneebiter, and Toenibbler. All models can be used as Battle
Pets and can be traded.

alt="Zandalari Anklerender" />

Living Sandling

Not much is known about the Living Sandling as
of yet, however, we do know that he drops somewhere in the Throne of
Thunder. It seems likely that the Living Sandling will be able to be used
as a Battle Pet and be traded with other players.

Trading Card Game

Gusting Grimoire

The Gusting Grimoire is the brand new pet
introduced into the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. While we aren't
sure exactly what this pet is supposed to be, it can be used in Pet
Battles and also can be traded to other players once obtained.
