"River dragons live on land but spend much of their time in the water. Their boundless energy and constant frolicking cause river dragon scales to fray at the edge, giving them the look of fur. Often found near the Ami'Lya Pond, their splashing creates something akin to a melody; they will occasionally dance to this river song."

Okay, I know I was hoping for beach dragon for the 2nd earth/water combo, but I love this guy! So adorable!

DragonOfDarkness's picture

Can you get a river dragon by breeding rain and earth?

Water dragon and Earth dragon

Get the lady amilaya pond first then breed water and earth if you get mud try other way.

Dragon wings's picture

Okay your level is fine because I was level 15 and got it. What worked for me was I bred a tree dragon and a water dragon (water on left and tree on right) and got it first try. Try it and hopefully it works.

I keep getting Mud Dragons. What is your level in the breeding dragons

Got it, now for number 2

Catnymph's picture

Omg first try water and earth and I got 10:24 so I got it. Wow first try. Too cool. He's so cute! Facebook mentions a river flowing through Dragonvale, now that would rock!


Yodatu's picture

Now that would be cool!!!!! Hope they do that. Will have to try for this Dragon once my Rose and Moon Dragons finish breeding!


Think I just got this with earth and ice

First try :) water and earth

Got River Monster on the first try. I was going for the Century as I do not have it but got the River. YES !!!!
Didn't even know it was out yet. I was surprised. After this one, back to the caves to try for the Century (then the Amethyst before its too late).

Think I just got this one. Still trying for the Century Dragon. Thrilled and frustrated all at once.

Was this dragon added today to the game??!!

Awesome!! First try and I got it!

Bloops's picture

Water earth got me 6 mud dragons in a row!!! :-(

3 mud dragons in a row before I finally got it!!

You need to buy the pond it says they love the pond I kept getting mud too and when I got the pond and then did it I got it!!

May the dragons be Eva in your favor!

Try flipping them, it actually makes a difference

Me too!

Thank u! Got it first try :)

Trying for century with glacier and water... Got 13h... Is a river dragon. Wow! First try.

Mabi-Bunny's picture

Got it first try with earth + water~

I'm so pissed, I've not bred a new dragon in weeks and 100s of times trying over and over with same dragons sometimes switching them around. It was the anniversary of my birth yesterday, turned 4...0 and it's really weird to hear myself say that bad word. But the point is I figured I've been great and helping animals and people so karma should have shined on me yesterday if shes going to out of any other day but nothing.


RobbinDaHoody962's picture

Water earth not a very challenging dragon to get

cosmictriggerhappy's picture

Just got river in my second try

Montgomeryswife's picture

First try mud and rain :)

Glacier & Rain in the cave

Water an earth two times in a row, mud dragon both times. Did earth and water and got this cute otter box.

Got it 1st try with Earth & Water!!!

Ooh, I just got this dragon with Glacier and Water, both level 7.

Earth & water didn't work for me after 5 tries so I tried mud & rain & got it on The 2nd try EBC/UB

Leiparis's picture

# 96 dragons out of 110 #

As mentioned above switch the dragons....water left and earth right :)

I have tried water and earth 5 times, no luck. Then tried rain and mud...even earth and fog 3 times. Still no luck. Also anyone know how I can get friends on the game if I play on a kindle?

Mud and rain, both level 10, breeding cave, first try...13 hours

Game centre is just for iPad users right? Or not? So how do I get friends to give and get gems from?

Jillie's picture

Mud and Rain worked for me :)

Is it just me or is this a very extensive doctor who reference??

XD No, I see it too. Whee~

Let's blow some shit up :D

Fluffydragon12's picture

Swamp + Mud 1st try. :)

Water and earth first try!!

Got it by accident when trying for the century dragon I bred mountain and water still no century dragon though :(

Redeyez's picture

I too got it with swamp and mud in the cave.

Hello Goodbye

blendoman's picture

I got it! Eath and water 2nd try on Epoc Breeding Island.

names blendoman in game center, currently have my gem friends but it's fun to visit parks so add me.

Guys buy the lady amilaya pond first then breed water and earth it should say 13hours

blendoman's picture

I did it without the pond, in fact I have no decorations and almost every dragon.

names blendoman in game center, currently have my gem friends but it's fun to visit parks so add me.

Swamp left mud right first try reg breeding cave....

Add me mmmb623

Got it first time with earth and water it's so cute

4 river dragons in a row using mud and blazing

H. Abraham

I believe that getting decoratioms that represent the dragon makes the chance of getting it higher. So far i have the panglong dec, amethyst, and rose topiary. It really seems to help !

Completely agree with this. After I got the Sun habitat, I breeded 2 sun dragons without even trying and same happened with Rainbow...maybe it's just chance, but I can't help but to see a pattern here.

Just got river first try. Rain on the left, earth on the right. Ebi.

Seaweed and Crystal

Kentos808's picture

Earth and water on epic breeding cave. 1st try 10hr 25min... Hope it's a river dragon!

Kept getting mud with water/earth combos and vice versa, so got one with Glacier & Water with UBC.

First try, Water and Earth (that order, both lvl 10, reg cave). Good day for breeding, I got two that I didn't already have (Thunder and River) and also a second Century.

Got this and thunder 1st try

Tried water and earth twice,got mud both times. Was going for century with iceberg and earth and got this one

Catlady254's picture

First try with dodo and mud

Petula1625's picture

Got it with panlong and rain.

Tried Water and Earth in EBI in the morning. Mud dragon. Then Earth and Water in the EBI and got it!


Also got one with Current and Mud in the morning at the BC.


screwes's picture

Rain & mud 1st go, reg breeding cave. I tried earth & Water 4 times with no luck.

Animaljamgirl's picture

Try water and earth instead of earth and water

Yodatu's picture

Just bred rain and mud and got an 8 hr breeding time? Can't find a dragon that may fit that breeding! Any ideas? Looked at all 8 hr breeders and none of them would fit this combo that I can tell. Was trying for the river dragon.


Anerdra's picture

I got it on the first try with mountain and water

Forestwonder's picture

Me too, after trying a bunch of other combinations, this worked 1st try. Both level 10, Mountain left, water on right, regular breeding cave (and I have the pond)

You need that one pond to get this dragon or else you get mud. Learned after 5 tries!! I got it!

May the dragons be Eva in your favor!

Century and Mud

quicksilver and lightning, regular cave. was trying to get cyclops but been getting a lot of cool fallout, including the river dragon.

Deathworm's picture

I got it with earth and icebrerg

Bryan osorio

I almost got I got mountain instead

Seaweed + Earth

jadie999's picture

Accidentally got this dragon twice whilst trying to breed century with mountain and water....

Waddle14's picture

Tried Earth and Water forever and kept getting mud. Mountain (Lvl 10) left and Water (Lvl10) right on EBI got this guy first try! Good Luck All!!!! :)

There are lots of new dragons coming out. There's thunder, this one, and an aquamarine dragon just came out today! I got this first try with iceberg and iron.

Got a lot of mud but finally got 13 hours on the island. Now for aquamarine...please let my luck continue!

GC ID is I8abug! 2016 -
Every day in this dragonvale park do i play,
Sending gems and treats to my friends on the way,
Flames fly from the tower and the cave is quite full,
But I keep breeding dragons 'cos it's always a thrill!

Yodatu's picture

Got it using level 10's Water/Earth on EBI! Next to hatch and try for Aquamarine!


Uggg... I've gotten at least 10 Mud... getting really annoyed. All you people who get them on the first try, I strongly dislike you :P I have NEVER gotten the dragon I was trying for on the first try... not even the second. Ah well, keeps me entertained.

Water and earth got 13hrs bought a extra pond because a little ambiance can't hurt:-)

I already have a river dragon, and I want another one for the egg collection; could I breed a river dragon with something else to get another one? Any ideas?


Earth and water never worked for me. Kept getting mud. Glacier and water on island worked for me first time.

Dramoria's picture

I've never tried Earth and Water, but Glacier and water worked first time for me in the breeding cave!!! Yay! Aquamarine Dragon, here I come!

Friend Code: 75370277 Add me!!

Ghost & Ice got me River Dragon

I think I may have finally got this dragon... After 31 attempts!! Earth and Water!

I did earth + water. I know its river with 13 hours.

Dfwop7's picture

Seaweed & Earth...finally got River Dragon after many tries and many Mud Dragons!

I tried for river with the water and earth dragon thing it did not work for like six attemps. then i tried getting the ami'lya pond still mud :(

I just got this dragon and now i have all avaible dragons!

Got it with ghost(left) and mud(right) on breeding island, worked first time for me

Ok I've tried a ton of times with water and earth, all I keep getting is mud dragon... And I've tried it both ways... Any other dragon combos that will give me this dragon?

Me to!!

How do u get it need it so bad

I got it!!!! With water and earth. soooo excited.

On the first try I got

what if you breed river with mud/ {by the way I am 10 years old] [and level 19]

Mud and Iceberg ebi.

Magnafinch's picture

The Good Lord only knows what I'm going to do with all the Mud dragons I've bread since the announcment of Mr. River Dragon, but finally, after trying all suggestions posted here, over and over again, 2 ami'lya ponds (if those actually do help) and LOTS of cursing later.. I do believe I've reached success! Seaweed / Earth - both level 10 on the EBI - 13 hour breed time

Red-Angel's picture

Good 4 u now it's my time to try again...
