Flaming turtle Hunter Pet

Hunter
I just saw a hunter in the bank have a flaming turtle type pet. Like the big elite wandering around hyjal. He was surv hunter (so not BM for exotic)

So I thought cool, I went to Hyjal and tried to tame it and it is not tamable.

Does anyone know what type of pet it could be.

It is exactly the flaming turtle that is in Hyjal
The pet you saw was a different rare spawn pet in Hyjal, try googling petopia. It's an amazingly helpful website for info about pretty much all hunter pets
Here ya go buddy

Terrorpene. Rare spawn from the throne of flame, in the lower level lava with the giants. Good luck taming him, he does 10k every second.
from what i've heard, he's tough to tame unless you are level 85 and pop rapid fire. or have a healer with you to lay on some hots. it's possible to tame him solo, but you need to have some haste stacked up so that tame pet doesn't take a bajillion years to cast.

On the contrary to this, I managed to tame him without use of haste potions or buffs, so it isn't impossible without haste enhancements.
The other turtule in that zone, Tortolla, is pretty cool too and a replica of him can be easily tamed in Blackfathom Deeps. He has a nice OD green color to him in game.

nice, good to know if i ever decide to go for him. i'm not big on rarespawn hunting though, and since i've got my sweet green scarab beetle.........
84-85 is easy to tame due to the huge health pool. lower levels have a problem and would advise some fire resistance since it's 4x the protection against that dot.
if you are doing normal questing, by the time you are 84 you should have enough hp to just stand there and tame him without using any tricks or nonsense
I just trained him today, I tried getting to the area as often as possible.

I stood there, and got him with about quarter health left.

And what was even better, Ghostcrawler (spirit Beast) I went there and there he was. Great rare pet taming day today.
I should say I trained both today, no idea why it posted under my Druid
i just tamed him on jaedenar server. took no time at all. and he didnt do THAT much dmg. the toughest part of taming him is finding him. Mounthyjal. upper right corner of throne of flame is where i got him.

Yeah but he has seaweed or some sort of gross slimy looking green stuff hanging off him. Eew! Terrorpene is much cooler.
You want a prismatic elxir from an alchemist (or buy one on your AH). It will protect you 4x better than normal against his 10k/second channeled fire DoT.

This makes the tame ridiculously easy even for a level 81, if you pop deterrence & rapid fire prior to taming and make sure you've got that elixir up.

I did the same. I had about 25% health left when I got him.

Drink a Magic Resist potion.

He only does 6k per second now.

Pop Ancient Hysteria before you try taming and he's tamed before he can do any real damage.

Yup, same here.

Tamed him without anything special. Just got to max range and started the tame. Pretty simple.
Honestly don't remember doing anything special for my terrorpene tame, was 85 in a mix of heroic 5 man gear, maybe some of the Zul epics if it was after 4.1.
