Watching the art panel, I'm not so sure we'll get brachiosaurs (called Brotosaurs), due to them being much, much bigger than Devilsaurs :/

Those strange little creatures are abominations created by the Blood Trolls, by corrupting other creatures.

Hard to see, but new vultures.

And we can still get a very sized down brachiosaur mount.

Ahh yes there's the green lizard again! And I saw the vultures, they definitely look to be an update of the original vulture model, I'm excited.

Also wild long neck dinos!! They look amazing. :D

Man that long neck dino just reminds me of the longnecks from Monster hunter.

Yeah, those vultures definitely look cool.

And I really do hope the armored brachiosaur becomes the new traveling mammoth or yak.

Reminder; things we don't like can be potentially fixed and/or altered if we show support for them. Once the beta is accessible, be sure to voice your interest in having these new critters as pets. Battle Pets are acceptable in the worst case scenario, but we want a menagerie of menacing monsters to make merry murder with us. We've got ugly freaks like the Mana Rays and Chimaeron, so there's no reason we can't have those freaky monsters as pets!

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

I mostly agree, Werebear. It comes down to what the creature actually is, and if we're capable of controlling/taming it. We won't know for certain until Beta when we learn more about the lore of each of the beasts. Chimaeron is a novelty tame and one of the exceptions to the lore (since it was killed lorewise), whereas Mana Rays are just horrendous beasts native to Argus.

That is huge. But if we could tame Thok the Bloodthirsty...

Is that from The Art of Warcraft panel? It isn't on the stream site, and I missed it earlier.

EDIT: Scratch that, Wowhead has images now. They're really slow today.

I'm not sure if I would use Thok as a good example. Like Chimaeron, he was a novelty tame. We'll just have to see if they'll make Brotosaurs tamable :)

And yes, it is from the art panel! It currently being uploaded to the virtual ticket thingy. But is not up yet. They also said the squig looking thing is called a bloodbeast.

Oh, yeah. I were more going with Thok being a huge pet. :'D

Welp, I want a Bloodbeast. I need it. They remind me of those dogs from Oddworld, and I loved Oddworld.

Hopefully, they'll have a version that isn't a Loa. That picture right there is of a Skyscreamer Loa.

I mean, if we get frog loa as mount, I hope we can get that guy as a mount too. Though as long as we get them, unarmored or armored.. as pets and mounts... I'm happy.

We'll be getting a frog as a mount, not the frog loa, though I get what you mean :)

Oh wow, that's awesome! It looks like they might be using the features variation thing more often on models, like they did with Argus talbuk horns.

Now we wait for more videos of the gameplay demos to see if we can track down that supposed new tarantula model. According to Ian/Redshirtguy, it was in the Drustvar zone. So far, only the Lore/Josh Allen zone demo by Blizzard where I didn't see it. All other currently uploaded gameplay demos are Horde.
