Upon attaining revered with The Oracles faction in Sholazar Basin, players can purchase a [Mysterious Egg]. Because it's unique, only one egg can be "incubated" at a time. After three days, the egg becomes lootable as a [Cracked Egg]. Possible loot includes [Aged Yolk], a Green Proto-Drake mount, or one of four vanity pets:

As of patch 4.0.3a, the time in which an egg will hatch was reduced to three days (down from seven).

Got him a couple of weeks ago. He is great to look at, a perfect match for my red hyena.

@Lilic - Had the same thing happen to me this morning. I was about to log off for the night when I remembered my egg was due to hatch so I stayed up the 23min to see what was inside. When I told my guild mates what had hatched I think I recieved a few gealous comments. I on the other hand was sad it wasnt the pet version. Oh well, next egg!

This would look really cute along with the Red Proto-Drake mount.

I love this little pet! Protodrakes are just so odd and awkward! And adorable! I remember when this little critter used to sing the murloc tune, and the months of him flying off whenever you mounted with him! Hehe, he was just a little shy of flying so fast I suppose.

The Moment I found out that this pet could follow you when you flied, I was ecstatic. My Violet Proto-Drake seems to have taken very well to it, like a mother, especially since the whelp seems to always prefer to fly under its wings and by the legs. It's just so cute that now I have a macro to summon both at once!

This little guy had actually made the same sounds and sang the same song that Murky does minus the top hat and cane =) But as Breanni stated this seems to have been removed in a patch.

@Xau: I believe it used to sing, hence our removal of that info from this pet's profile. From what I recall, they removed it in patch 3.2 because it was an unintended bug. I know I haven't heard this or any of the other Mysterious Egg-hatched pets sing since 3.1.

A great start; now we need to see proto-drake whelps in all the other colors, too!

These voracious whelps grow at an incredible rate and can devour nearly twice their weight in raw meat per day.
