I hope this isn't already known.

During the Klaxxi Quest "Infection" (http://www.wowhead.com/quest=31272) you have to kill infected animals, which spawn Amber Parasites.

These are tamable, and they are HUGE like Chibee used to be ^^

EDIT:
The parasites are Lvl 90 and it seems that neither the daily or Klaxxi reputation is needed to make them spawn.

nice find! I wonder if there are other similar models that have had a "tamable" tag sneaked in!

Just tested, and yes, they DO spawn even if you don't have the quest. You cannot tell which beasts will spawn them, so just hunt down mushan, moths, and porcupines till one spawns. Also, don't use any AoE, you'll kill em. (Killed one as it spawned with glave toss lol)

UPDATE: Using burrow kills it
resurrected it
It uses borrow fine (no animation)

UPDATE 2: Summoning seems to take a very long time for this...

Hm, mine works fine, like every other pet.

But it's model doesn't show in the stable master window and arsenal.

I tried taming a jormungar tunneler in northrend. They have the same mode yet they are not tameable. Does anyone know what other version's of this mob are tameable? I want one now and don't want to wait for that daily to be available to me.

Edit: Oh I didn't see they spawned even without the quest.

I'm currently checking the toothed and toothless models, don't worry about it. (Although some help would be nice, check Wain's thread for the full list.)
So far, I've found no others tameable.

Oh, that's exciting! :) Always thought those models were awesome looking.

Since we're checking others, I happened to be in Dragonblight while reading this so I checked the baby Jormungar Tunnelers, but they're not tameable.

I hope this is intentional, I'd love to see more of these particular skins.

I'm really hoping there will be a tamable black model. Those are my fave!

I checked the Giant Sea Grubs in Vashj'ir. Not tamable.

Someone should check the Mutated Grubs in Naxxramas, maybe.

I in fact was reading this thread while in Naxx, and can sadly say that the Mutated Grubs are not tameable.

It definitely seems like a mistake then. But hopefully they'll let it stay. I've already let Noah know because if they DO decide to change it then I'd prefer they do it sooner rather than later, when people get too attached to their new pets. But as I said, I hope they don't get rid of it. Larvae always seemed like silly pets to me, since they don't have much in the way of a developed brain. But since they allowed silkworms then they might as well allow maggot types too :)

Aww, I hope we can keep them.
The more I look at it the more I think it looks kinda cute :D

It has even a better texture than the silkworms ^^
