Since there is a Tauntaun thread and a Orobird thread, when this was posted in the Orobird thread:

I figured it'd be a good idea to make a topic for it too. There have been three Raklings posted on databases and considering how it's gone with the Orobird and Tauntaun, I wouldn't be surprised if all 3 were available as one obviously is and like the Orobirds and Tauntauns, is linked in a set of 3.

Midnight Rakling - Hard Mode Lost Island Bosses.
Crimson Rakling - Gotten from completing the "Tracking the Origin" Quest during the Rakghoul Pandemic Event on Tatooine.
Pale Rakling - Bought from Jeelvic in the Dune Sea (X:-896, Y:-925 during the event period only) for 60 DNA Samples which you get from completing quests and/or exploding from Raghoul disease during the Rakghoul Pandemic Event on Tatooine.

However, considering these aren't even mentioned in the patch notes, this brings up the question of just how many other pets there may be?

With 1.3, 6 more pets are introduced (Once again, both in sets of 3), some new Akk Dog Pets and Lobel pets:
Gannifari - Given to all users as a Thank you through Mail during the first week of August 2012 for using the Server Transfer system and/or already being on a Destination Server by 12:59AM EST on July 31st, 2012.
Lawgriffarl - Requires Rank 70 Valor. Costs 1,000 Ranked Commendations and 2,000 Warzone Commendations. Gotten from the PVP Items Vendor.
Hagnoffarl - Gotten as a reward for completing "The Grand Acquisitions Race".
Lobelisk - Requires Rank 70 Valor. Costs 1,000 Ranked Commendations and 2,000 Warzone Commendations. Gotten from the PVP Items Vendor.
Lobelot - Can be bought from Shady Dealer in the Lower Promenade (X:-921, Y:-767 during the event period only) for 250 Tokens of Enrichment which you get from completing quests related to the Grand Acquisitions Race and finding Smuggler's Crates. You also have a chance of getting a Lobelot from a Smuggler's Crate.
Lobelode - ???

Any one who would like to contribute...please do.

It was noted on the old PTS topic that they were in the databases (and new in the databases), but nobody actually expected them to be able to be gotten in 1.2 (as the Tauntauns have been listed on the databases for a long time as have the Orobirds) so most kind of just shrugged it off. Nobody ever got them, so I'm guessing it's either rare or not many people did Lost Island (or just most that did never noticed the topics or thought to say anything).

I think a lot of people will want them.

I personally want all the pets, but with so many of them being random drop, I'm really feeling the weight of discouragement Not to mention the fact that these weren't even noted in the patch notes makes me worry about how many other things we may be missing and don't even know about.

That is the fun though right? The devs had given us breadcrumbs to have the tresure hunt and now we learned there may be a lot more maps we have yet to discover!

Besides, the mix of pets is probably to create a tier of rarity and make it available. I am sure on some servers, farming the eggspot for its respawn (which is long) takes up time and to elleviate it, if you are not picky, you can get it froma FP (which still may need to be farmed to even get the drop let alone win it).

Anyhow, it excites me. You shouldn't feel discouraged! Stuff like this is what makes MMOs fun to explore!

Edit: There doesn't seem to be a known reptile pet. Perhaps we can get a baby varactyl? :3
