Smallest pet?

Unread post by FistOfThorns » Thu Jan 12, 2012 10:08 pm

What is the smallest pet in the game? Is it a seagull? Ive heard that there is a spider that gets really small when you tame it as well.

Thanks!

I think I'd agree that seagulls are probably the smallest.

The 'spiky' spider models, such as the ones found on Bloodmyst Isle, do get fairly small after taming. Demon dogs are another tiny pet, but overall I believe seagulls win.

I'll add that monkeys (not gorillas) are also very small, but yes, I believe seagulls take the cake.

The corpse scarab from Naxx used to be super tiny. Pictures here. This has long since been fixed.

Currently seagulls are probably the smallest pet, and the demon model dogs look way undersized when tamed.

Ghostcrawler is also really really small.* I personally wish that the seagulls were a bit larger :(


* I am insinuating nothing by this. :lol:

I love the size of the seagulls. There are so many humongous pets, it's nice to have a tiny one.

I tamed one of the seagulls in Tol Barad on a level 10 hunter back when pets were still a minimum of 3 levels lower than you. Comparing it to the size of the Rustberg Gull minipet from TB marks, it made the minipet look like it was the actual Hunter pet. XD

Old post about it located here.

Not to forget the glyph that can make your pet slightly smaller too...

lol running several randoms after getting the tol barard seagull on my lowbie hunter, groups kept asking me where I got my vanity pet from and why I didnt have a hunter pet out...I had to make a macro in the end so i didnt have to keep typing out that that seagull WAS my hunter pet, not a vanity pet. lol.

Definitly one of my favourite pets, despite me prefering my pets bigger. They just have so much personality, and the "trick" they do is funny!
(incidently its also the /mountspecial of druid flight forms as well)

Rodents, Seagull, Monkey, Grubs

Unread post by Kiadajthebeast » Wed Nov 18, 2020 2:59 pm

Rodents!! Rodents are -really- small too. Kinda about the size of a small dog. The seagull and rodent options are the smallest. I got mine in legion, it is the marsupial (Marsuul). Mine is black and green. It is a very cute pet and dashes around in circles like it is chasing a butterfly of something. It's inconspicuous though if you wanted to go more stealth.

Side note: the monkeys are pretty small. Keep in mind how much noise the critter makes though, marsuul's are really quiet, I think the monkeys are kinds noisy.
Additional side note: Grubs are fairly small.

I think there were toads that go very tiny and it might have been fixed, porcupines are actually smaller than marsuuls, darkhounds are much bigger than they used to, the old models were much smaller than the new ones, aqir wasps and bees are also pretty small, and before patch 8.1, the juvenile thumpknuckles used to be monkeys, after I tamed one, they ended up really huge and were in the gorilla family, I was sad that I lost my pet giant monkey to a gorilla, it’s memory will stay with me forever

There is also a bug that to my knowledge still works (as one of my pets is effected by this bug).
There is a quest in Northrend for Horde, Borean Tundra, that has you shrink mammoths.
Start shrinking the Mammoth, then mid shrink, switch to targeting your pet (or yourself).
Your new target will be a bit smaller, but also engulfed in ruby flames.
This effect will vanish upon death though.

Siggy under construction!

The Pit Snake in Vol'dun is still abnormally small. Smaller then it's mini pet counter part! Mini pet on the left, actual pet on the right.

I’ve tamed one myself, they are so adorable, I’ve never been adored by a serpent pet until now, I can gank low level players as a tiny snake, they won’t see my snake coming and biting them to death
