Bounced around the WoWsphere today?  If not, you might’ve missed this news that came out today:

Yes, that is the racial mount for the Pandaren, hence today’s post title.  It’s not my reaction, but I think I’ve made it clear that not much in the upcoming expansion has elicited much excitement from me.  However I’m also not about to dispute fact and logic when it pertains to the general masses.

I’ll say this much, it’s certainly better than the Goblin and Worgen mounts…

    Hmmm, a turtle wouldn’t be my first choice as a mount, but they kind of appropriate for the Pandaren. I’m pretty okay with anything, just anxious to know when it’s getting here.

    Huh…was kind of wishing for a big, furry yak. Is that a yak? Can’t really tell. Think they need to go back to the drawing board on Worgen mounts and do gypsy horses.

      That’s no yak…it’s a dragon turtle.

        A. Dragon. Turtle.

          So it’s not just me then?

          I get the distinct impression this will either be “o…..kay….” or “ZOMGSQUEEEEEEEE” in reaction. I foresee little in-between.

    Looks like a cross between a turtle and a kodo to me. I’m down with that. The picture on WoWInsider that shows them with open mouths is kind of cute — would be more awesome if they breathed fire, though 😛

      I just realised they’re a funky Bulbasaur.

        OMG that is an awesome observation.

    Like Matty, I definitely would have preferred a yak. I mean, dragon turtle…I just tried to imagine it flying around breathing fire and guarding a cave full of gold and doing other dragony-type stuff and then my brain started hurting. =/

    I thought it was a turtle. I think that a turtle would suit the race with the whole Kung Fu Panda theme that seems to be going on with it. Dragon turtle, ok I can see that maybe. But really what other asian type things can they have with those gold dragons, pandas…. what else can carry a chubby panda anyway, right?
    No yaks. Yaks spit and do yukky splotty poos.

      Camels spit too and we got those.
