After 2 months of failing to breed a shell lizard I finally have enough gold to buy one. I don't know if I should just cave and buy it or keep trying. I could buy a 2nd nest instead. Who else out there wad unsuccessful and bought theirs instead?

I would go for a second nest, unless you have all the (non white) rares already, then I would buy the shell lizard.
Second nest makes a lot of difference. However if you haven't gotten a shell lizard in 2 months of trying, then chances are you won't get it anytime soon.

I missing an inferno and the shell lizard and diamond of course. I'm still trying to decide. My device does not seem to be very lucky at all. I have the same bad luck in DS too but have nearly as much gold in that game to be able to buy anything.

Then I would advice buying nest first then shell lizard, but the other way around is fine too, it doesn't make much of a difference. You'll start saving for the thing you didn't get next anyway.
Just be careful not to lose gold in a goldtrap. Those traps can happen even without misclicking. Twice I have gotten a "not enough gold for this purchase" message in dragon story, when I clicked just once on expand. Luckily I didn't have the 300+ gold required on hand, otherwise it would have been gone. So spend your gold on either option and save for the other, before you lose it ;)

I think you should buy Nest better ... You'll eventually get shell ... I got many shells using sea buffalo and palwing and like that you may get burnbark which I got like 10 and like 20 shells

I completely forgot about the bumbark! So I'm missing that one, inferno, shell and diamond.

DO NOT buy a shell lizard bc I can feel that you'll regret spending 200 gold for it. You might end up with a shell very soon. Buy the 2nd nest instead. It makes a BIG difference.

2nd nest greatly helps reduce waiting times and is very useful when trying to get diamond hybrids (once you get to that point).

Thanks everyone for you advice. I'm glad I didn't cave to impatience because now I finally have a shell lizard breeding. Sea buffalo x palmwing = 20 hours breed time! So I bought a 2nd nest.

Thanks! I think I have that missing inferno breeding now. I tried tree rex x leaf lion and got 10 hr breed time. Now I just need a burnbark and I'll have all of them but the non-shell hybrids, diamond and non-diamond hybrids.

I would suggest buying the second nest and concentrate on trying to breed for a diamond instead of just a shell. It took me a while to get my first shell but when I was breeding mosstrich and furball trying to get a diamond I got so many shell and other rares instead.

I think it's so odd that people can't get a shell lizard & super unfair. breeding to get a diamond has resulted in MANY shell lizards & I've never had a shell in the combo! I got six shells alone, by breeding medusasaur & pheonix

Diamond needs 4 elements and shell needs 3. So if your combo has 4 elements, I can see how you could get a shell or a 2 element monster instead. I'm just glad I finally got the shell so I can work on its hybrids and a diamond. It must have taken 100 tries. I was about to give up!

Go for a second nest. Trust me on this
I got 8 or 9 Shell Lizards, not sure how many.

Got them all while trying for a second Diamond.
I always use the same combo for both. Leaf Lion and Wavewing.

Keep on trying. You'll get it. I'm positive :)
