So on MMOC today there's a minipet version of a baby crocolisk... with a glowing fin and eyes and junk-stuff...

What are the chances we'll get ADULT 'thundercrocodiles'? Because I know I sure's hell want one. How badass would that be...

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I feel like these aren't suppose to be baby thundercrocolisks, but an updated model of baby Diemetradon's like the ones in Un'Goro Crater.

Either way, they look very cool! ^^

They're labelled as "thunder crocolisks" and spawn as Electrified Razortooth battle pets.

Just speculating. Maybe they're attempting to bridge crocs and diemetradons as a precursor to adding the latter to the croc family. I'd prefer diemetradons to have their own family with a special ability, but maybe it's their intent to unify them.

More speculation: perhaps this potential merging is due to Blizzard running out of ideas for new family abilities.

Another speculation: Maybe we'll discover in a patch or two an adult dimetradon/croc? That would be awesome :D 'course would love to see dimetradon's get an update just in general, but the baby croc-radon is so adorable, id love to see an adult splice

Every time I see the Direhorn models I can't help but think of this:

I have a giant vinyl poster tucked away in my closet advertising Primal Rage. It was going to be thrown out by my local EBGames (back when they existed) because it had a small tear in it of all things.

Best score ever, rescuing that thing.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I updated the official Petopia images to include the new shades for the green and blue direhorns and the dark blue devilsaur. The old ones can still be seen by appending "-original" to the image name.

Judging from the default look of the model file, they're supposed to mount only but I guess they can work for pets if someone wants them to.

There's a model that has no harness or saddle, as well as the mount one. So yes, they did create one that could be used for wild bats, and I expect they will add it. I'm surprised they haven't used it for Isle of Thunder, along with the new bird model.

I didn't know this until your post; and I confirmed it in modelviewer. Up until now I thought that the least-armored the bats could get was with the harness!

There's no discernible reason for Blizzard not to add an updated-model, unarmored creature that is of the same family as an existing, unpopular one. Kunchong and Colossi are distant enough apart lore-wise, if not model-wise, to be considered different creatures... but these are most definitely bats. I can't wait, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :headbang:

Ditto, I'm dying to tame one of those gorgeous new models. :) Hopefully they're added in somewhere, it would be a shame not to use them. I don't know where I'll put it, but I'll make stable space somewhere. *crosses fingers*
