Yes, I feel the same way. The Warcraftpets pics are beautiful, but take up a lot of screen real estate, especially on the Warcraftpets forums, which are incredibly skinny!

So...if I put attachments on this post, would I be able to go back and add them to the beginning of the thread? And would the code be

Code: Select all

(Can you tell I've never done attachments?)

Edit: or I could just do this?

Yes, do what you just did. :D

Also, I like that the background colors are different because if people are matching minipets with pets, the green is a dead giveaway that they can do so.

Is that a suggestion to use the Petopia moths where appropriate? :)

Will see about working on this tomorrow.

Great list - thanks to this I discovered I was missing one of the Desert Spider skins on top of the handful I noted from Wain's list. It's so much easier being able to see the differences.

Also, this is one that I haven't seen listed here or on Warcraftpets (I saw it mentioned on the comments there, but I didn't have visual proof of it until today so I didn't want to bank on it until now). The Tundra Penguin has 2 skins! And if anyone wants to forward the info to someone on Warcraftpets to correct fix, feel free to do so. :)

This is the one shown on Warcraftpets and seems to be the default color. Red eyes and red-brown head and tail feathers. It was tamed as a secondary but has been color stable (from what I can tell) since 5.1.

This one has blue eyes and yellow feathers. I tamed it as a secondary today and he's so far been color stable.

Go right ahead! I was so happy to be able to tame a second rare to finally prove to myself that I wasn't crazy, that there really are two skins. :)

Thanks! To be fair it was a comment under Tundra Penguin by Savo72 on Warcraftpets that made me look more carefully at them. Before 5.1 I did notice that my original Tundra Penguin's eyes would change colors on summons once in a while, though it almost always defaulted to red. So I thought, maybe there really is something to it. After 5.1, when the color changers were supposedly made stable, I decided when I was done with all my other taming goals that I would go back and try to see if a stable, blue eyed penguin really existed. Spent some time this morning squinting at penguins during pet battle (the lighting in Dragonblight makes it hard to see) and then just decided to tame anything uncommon quality or better and then summon them to check. My first tame was a red eyed uncommon, but then a rare popped up about three battles later and it was indeed blue eyed on both the companion tab as well as on summons.

A friend, Tragica, pointed out something: the Mountain Cottontail seems to have a 'shiny' coat. There is a 'normal white' and a 'shiny white'. Here's a screenshot of the two side by side, enhanced by biscuits so it's clearer: I have a shiny, she has a normal. Both of these are Mountain Cottontails.

Image

As she pointed out, the shiny one also doesn't have whiskers, and the body shape is much sharper and blockier. Probably somewhere along the way, a different mask was put on it.

The shiny rabbit....isn't that the one from the Oracles daily where you dig up shiny things? I swear I remember a shiny white rabbit coming up occasionally.

That was a great find :) I'd noticed rabbits in Redridge were shinier but I had assumed it was just that new MoP lighting effect in the zone. Must go digging in the database tonight and find out what the difference is :)

Added a link in the first post to detailed charts for each model, by Lisanette from Warcraftpets.

Edit: links for each chart are now in the model names

The scorpid "black with orange spots" colour can also be found on Crunchy Scorpions, not just Scorplings. WCP was missing this colour, but I've let them know.

Thanks for the update! But as the Scorpling always comes in black/red, I don't feel a need to add pets that have multiple colors to black/red. (And the Crunchy is more needed for the orange and both blue variants.)
