"The exceptionally rare leap year dragon can only be seen in the wild once every four years near Bridget's Pass. Getting one of these in your park is sure to make your visitors over the rainbow? Or is it over the moon? I can never remember..."



You can't have the leap year. It's expired.

When does this dragon come back

Crap! how to breed?

I know that it says expired but I just got a Leap Year Dragon. Was trying for Cyclops using Quick silver and Current.

The Squirrel Mother's picture

What have you tried, Summer? This seems to be the ONLY dragon I have had luck making. I've made 5 of them now. With only 6 total new species bred during BEB, this thing is dominating my game. Latest combo was river + firework. Before that, river + smoke. Good luck!

Squirrelland has taken a chill pill and I'm baaaaa-aaaack!!!!

summerbaey's picture

All the combos actually , there's another website that sort of similar to this & I followed but failed. Failed so hard :(

summerbaey's picture

Thanks to you I think I got one. I did River + Smoke both level 10 in regular breeding cave and I got 14 hours and 30 minutes. I really hope it's a leap year dragon (:

Scrappajax's picture

Keep trying with various combos. I got a few trying for paper and panlong so try those combos. River/smoke is good. Good luck!

I was trying to get a Reindeer dragon, got a leapyear instead with storm and flower :)

I got it with the gift dragon and the earth dragon. I am level 10 so I am REALLY REALLY happy!!!!! I also got moltely and raindeer with that same combination

I LOVE HAMSTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no specific combination to get this dragom, same as Rainbow and Double Rainbow. You just need to breed two dragons, at any level, with four different elements between them. For example, I used the Motley/Hail combination and ended up with about five of them... just breeding to see what I could end up with with.

When the walls come crashing down, I'll be standing right by your side.

I just randomly bred a friends galaxy dragon and my cold dragon and got a 14:30 breed time..... Could this be a leap year??


Carolyn43's picture

Should be. It's the only listed outcome for 14:30 breed time.
