Cloud Serpent faction don't even need dailys to get exalted; a few run throughs for eggs will get you there no problems even on a busy server. Am I to believe that everyone who has won a Heavenly Onyx Serpent not only hasn't had this faction at exalted but can't be bothered doing the easiest dailys of the xpac but can't be bothered flying through Windward Isles a few times for eggs to show off their luck in winning one of the rarest mounts in the game at the moment? Either the drop rate is absurd or they don't drop, either way Blizzard need to tinker with this.
This thread made me doubt that the mounts can actually drop. Seems like Blizzard messed up here.. And I've been spending a coin each week :/
So what do screenshots prove?
Let me summarize a few things:
There is absolutely no evidence that they don't exist. (Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence)
There is some evidence that they do exist... but at least half of the screenshots are 'suspicious' (one guy lathered in the rarest gear in the game, another picture shows the same person having both mounts on the same day).

There is no way to prove the screen shots on wowhead are on live servers and not private servers or from beta, there isnt enough information in them to make that determination, since its not possible to prove they are or aren't from live, they are not useful information, although armory does have bugs it is more reliable that screen shots such as the ones on wow head that show nothing except the model and someone on them. (personally I would have though someone would screenshot riding it in kun lai where it was acquired at the time it was acquired, maybe over sha's corpse with 39 other people around, would at least be substantial) An armory link is the best bet or a video or a far more descript screen shot showing player and guild names (Could be faked on a private sever but that is way stretching it) The screenshots on wowhead just aren't enough proof on their own.
That would be Epicus Maximus from Beta. He still can be seen during a quest in Uldum.In the meantime I claim there are raptors riding on sharks with lasers on their head. If you don't believe me, just prove me wrong.
@Topic: these mounts must have an absurdly low droprate, probably something line 0.01% to account for the fact that everyone and their mom can kill sha weekly and roll on their loot multiple times.
Assumption A: The mounts don't drop.
Assumption B: The websites are bugged, the Armory is bugged, everyone who received it didn't have the training and have no interest in the training, everyone who's seen it has developed amnesia and can't remember the name of the people who have the mounts.
At some point, the simpler explanation has to win out.

I come from a time and a place where I judge people by the content of their character; I don't give a damn if you are tall or short; gay or straight; Jew or Gentile; White, Black, Brown or Green; Conservative or Liberal.
In your example, since you are claiming there is an Epicus Maximus, it is up to you to prove it does exist
Someone earlier in this thread claimed the number of realms is 500, a number which is also round enough to smell like it was cut out of whole cloth. He also made a serious mistake in a simple multiplication operation, resulting in a value of 100,000 where the correct one was 1,000,000, which ironically enough would have bolstered his claim in the final total were it not for the fact that all of his inputs were wild assumptions as well.
Seranthor. You are just like an extreme Christian fanatic. Ehrmagherd... prove God doesn't exist. I think it's pretty obvious that Blizzard has made a poo-poo here and forgot to "activate" the mount drops. webpages that scans armory can't find the mount, none knows anyone that has the mount, and the ones that claims to have seen it forgot to take a screenshot or don't remember their name. Climb off your 100 feet tall horse and stop being such a smartass.
People ask for pictures. There are pictures. The burden is then to prove said pictures are dubious.Several pictures of dubious origin. Not one armory link of anyone who's learned the mount.
If the armoury doesn't record properly? It's not certain, but it's not impossible.
someone on my server (veknilash-us) got the galleon mount. i dont remember his name exactly but im pretty sure he was in the guild divinity.
Side B: Increasingly complex explanations.
Occam's Razor dictates that the simpler explanation is the more likely one.
Oh, and all these outside bugs conveniently only affect these two mounts out of the 300+ that exist.
