As one of the most appealing and cute mounts ever introduced to the game, it’s only natural that the folks at Square Enix would lock it behind one of the most difficult pieces of content in Final Fantasy XIV.

Pandaemonium: Anabaseios (Savage) unlocked Tuesday, May 30, at 3am PT. It’s been implied that the Megaloambystoma mount is a rare drop in the Anabaseios: The Twelfth Circle (Savage) eight-man Raid.
