Determined efforts by zoologists on Hoth have led to the domestication of the tauntaun, an indigenous species of reptomammal that is well-adapted to the harsh, icy conditions on the planet. Until recently, the animals have proven too ill-tempered to serve as reliable mounts, with even the most docile tauntauns bucking their harnesses and throwing their riders regularly.

Great! I am glad Tauntauns have made their way into the game. Have been waiting for animal mounts for the longest time. Perhaps this is what is more to come?
Use the force

And thank you for allowing the subscribers a special tauntaun mount which also costs less. Maybe this will stop the complaining that subscribers don't get anything special. (Well I can dream can' t I? lol)

you can dream but they will gripe eery chance they get. I swear bioware has some of the worst fans I am still not over how people acted to the Mass Effect 3 ending and then still wanted a whole new game even after the extended cut.

And I thought the fleet smelled bad before the taun tauns.

But seriously folks, hooray!
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?

This reflects my feelings as well!!! I hope this is a wonderful start to more animal mounts, there is collection of feline and reptilian animals across the SWTOR universe in game already that would be awesome mounts.
