Update – 06/28/11: See this post for an up to date, comprehensive look at all of the taming challenges arriving today in Patch 4.2! Also, be sure to have a look at the user-submitted screenshot gallery.
Look at this interesting bit from the latest 4.2 PTR patch notes…
- 8 new rare tamable beasts have been added, each of which provides a unique taming challenge. Will you be the first hunter to tame Deth’tilac, the rarest and most powerful of them all? Players will need to progress through the Hyjal Regrowth and Molten Front daily questing areas in order to unlock access to the full gamut of taming challenges.
I can’t say I’m excited about the daily quest grind, but the unlocking of the new rare pet taming possibilities is very intriguing. I’m hoping that all of these “taming challenges” can be completed solo, or perhaps… have to be completed solo. I like the idea of implementing more feats of strength for solo players.
I have a feeling that Deth’tilac will be one o’ them fancy new lava spiders. I wonder what the others will be..?

Two new rares have just been discovered on the PTR. They are not part of the taming challenge series of pets. Neither are exotic and both of them are very bitchin.
Have a look…
