Regarding monkeys, I tamed one from lowbie Deadmines before Cata launched and I think he's hilarious. They may not have the most useful ability ever for PvE content ( 4 sec blind isn't exactly a reliable CC), but in a well balanced 10M or any 25 you're likely to have every buff covered by players and can just pick whatever pet you want. I like Marcell, I don't raid on my hunter so I doubt he'll ever see much use, but I certainly don't agree with the other hunters you've talked to about the monkey family. /pets MarcellSeriously, I weep for the childhood of hunters who don't think Monkey's are at least amusing. I agree with you about wanting certain mobs to be tamable, though. I would love a Gyreworm and I'd take a Diametredon or at least a Basilisk over a dumb stinky old Crocolisk any day of the week. I've just taken a very "don't look a gift horse in the mouth" approach to pets this expansion. Pet-collecting Hunter's were pampered during beta. New models to existing families, several completely new families, a bunch of new rares that will only be camped for taming rather than some ridiculous achievement. I don't get my Gyreworm, but I got Terrorpene and Maddex (or will, at least). I lost my Boss tag on The Beast, but I also got to tame bosses from AQ40, AQ20 and BWL. Ghostcrawler -cannot- be killed, only tamed. My only point with my post was that, while "Just rename the croc family and throw them in there" seems obvious to us, it may be something that is vastly more complex than that or something that Blizzard just isn't comfortable with in regards to pet variety, flavor, etc.
