Those crabs really do look like they'll be used to replace the old models. It'll be interesting to see them up close but so far they look like a decent replacement. If not, they'll be a nice new addition anyway.

I spent so much of my morning screaming over all of the new creatures. Really excited about all of them! I love those giant lizards we got a glimpse of and all of the cute new beasts. The updated pterrosaur models look great, I feel like we have a good chance of being able to tame them now. :) (also hoping for the Oondasta-style armored devilsaurs to be tameable)

I absolutely love that new crab model too! It looks like an actual faithful revamp of the classic one and I think it would work well for replacing them, if they decide to go that route.

I'm super excited about new hyena models. I wish we could get a higher-res image of them.

Yeah, the hyenas and crabs look like they could be the updates to the old world models, with some rares keeping the old models.

Also, horses. There's new horse models, I hope they update the lvl 20 human horse models with those, like they did with the kodos in Legion.

The neck bulge on the hyena models makes me cringe...I thought the current neck issue was bad, but they seemed to have emphasized it catastrophically on the new model T.T
The rest of the model is fine, but WHY? WHY keep that broken neck issue????

I'm with Mia on this one. So many dinosaurs, I MUST HAVE THEM ALL.

Pterodactyls, I must have them especially. I've wanted one since I first saw them in Un'goro Crater so many years ago.

It'll be interesting to see what other colours those pterodactyls come in. The model is probably close enough that they could replace the originals, but the only colours I've seen don't match the old ones. Then again, maybe they don't need to be perfect matches when they're not replacing tameable pets, and even if they were they couldn't be any more different to the originals than those bear replacements.

Too many awesome critters! I would really like to befriend a giant isopod. I am also very pleased with the updated Vanilla crab! It kept the same feel but looks a million times better. That's the kind of update I want to see!

I am not sure honestly considering this troll expansion wether to:
play a DK and hope for undead dino glyphhs, play a hunter and tame all the dinos, play a druid cause I'm sure as heck Zandalari will have dino forms, DINOMANCY EXPANSIOOON :) also, love the compyes but I hope they implement a swarm/horde/grouped version with 5 or 3 of them together being tameable as a single pet ( like minions in overlord ) would be awesome for such pets to finally be implemented :D

Many hunter pets and mounts I'm excited about, but I'm also pleased with the compys. Yay, for mini-pet dinosaurs that don't have bobble-heads!
