By breeding Fire x Nature together, you get either a Toy Poodle (X-mas Nature) or a Reindeer (X-mas Fire), which are both 7hrs. Once you've acquired both, after breeding them together you can get a Santa Claws (8hrs). Rewards for completion of 'Here Comes Santa Claws' goal is 5 gems and 25XP and it lasts 26 days.


Santa Claws - Super Rare (8hrs breeding/ 9hrs evolution/ need fire habitat)

Reindeer - Rare (7hrs breeding/ 8hrs evolution / need fire habitat)

Edit: Kooky, it says I can only attach five files per post :( Want to add the Santa Claws habitat screenshot to the post but it won't let me. Any way to allow one more picture to the post? Thanks!

Edit 2: Also, Kooky... as a side note, is there a reason the forum avatars don't work for normal users but only work for mods? Just curious since most users here would probably like to have their own working avatars ^^;; Sorry if it's a bit off-topic but it came up in the topic and it's something people are curious about.

I'm confuse on how you get the Christmas elements. Not sure which animals to put in. There's also a cute holiday habitat but cost 500 gems. I wished there was a smaller one that cost coins.

If you look at the quest, it says to breed fire & nature. I tried and got 3 hours. While we don't know the breed times on the new guys yet, I doubt it's 3 hours.

I really, really, really hope so too! If I get them, I don't want to have to put them in fire or nature or my haunted hollow. I want that habitat! But no way Jose will I spend 500 gems on it.

The goal says to breed Fire-Nature to get both Reindeer and Poodle. Then, breed them together to get the Santa Claws.

I really hope these animals aren't as difficult as the fall earth-natures, or we will all be frustrated and unhappy.

I have a 14 hour cooking but I didn't breed exclusively red and green. I threw in red, green, earth and dark... Still missing the Crystal Unicorn so I always try to use 4 elements.

I am alternating that with trying for Toucan too (which I am still missing) - very happy we can potentially get these Christmas animals with the Vinotaur/Ocean Owl combo. That is a plus. :)

Yes definitely! I need to try for the Toucan too.

I have 20 minutes until I can do my first breed... so excited! I definitely want to get in on this immediately, since I know that chances are higher right away.

Good luck. The new animals that you can get with fire-nature are rare, so there is a pretty good chance you got one. Also, TL loves to give limited animals the same timer as super rares of the same elements. Let us know when you have it in the nest!

I SO wish you had been right. Had it been Scare crow + runes, I would not have hesitated even half a second before buying it. Especially since it is finally correctly priced at $10. But alas it seems they will only ever put animals i have in packages and i will never get my crow. :(

ETA: breeding time on both Xmas animals gotten via fire + nature = 7 hours.

I agree: 500 gems just for a holiday habitat is pretty steep and there's no way many ppl will ever want to buy it. Especially since all the habitats were on sale for 150 gems not long ago -___-

Either way, I'm glad I sped-bred a bunch of fails to get the Reindeer and Poodle since that's a load off my chest for the foreseeable future.

Normally I would feel that way but after the autumn animals I am not very hopeful. I have tried almost non stop and I have not gotten a single autumn animal...could not even get the grassquatch. I still need the pumpkin panda and autumn hedgehog also. That is a total of 4 animals with the same nature/earth combo and I did not get a single one after all these weeks of trying. (I did cave and buy the unicornicopia when he was on sale) I sure hope my luck is better for the Christmas animals.

I'm pretty sure you'll get the holiday animal with 7hrs. I think they've suspended the Vinotaur for now so that ppl won't get confused since I've yet to breed out a Vinotaur from my countless fails and every 7hr I had was a holiday animal. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I also think you're only allowed to have 1 holiday animal each. In other words, you can only have 1 Reindeer, 1 Toy Poodle and 1 Santa Claws (unless you buy them with gems). I just find it odd that when I went through millions of fails that I didn't once get a Vinotaur nor did I get 'duplicates' of the Reindeer and Toy Poodle.

Hrm...

I stand corrected :D I guess I was just lucky in the sense that I bred out the two I needed instead of duplicates... to tell the truth, it was pretty cheap with only fairy ferrets to speed up, so I'm grateful for that at least ^^; No idea about the Vinotaur, though... curious to see if anyone can breed him out during this time or if the Vinotaur just hates me and refuses to ever show up in my forest.

I sped-bred a bunch of ferrets and managed to spend only under 80, thankfully. Well spent, imo, b/c I don't have to worry about getting this-and-that during 26 days nor will it cut into my wish to breed other animals than fire x nature :D

I've never been able to speed breed on the first day because I'm always at work and it's late when I get home and I have missed most of the time. But today...I sped bread and got the reindeer and poodle back to back. Fed them and sped evolved them and put them in and got the Santa Claws on the first try. Wow...I have never had that kind of luck...I fully believe they are easier to get on the first day like others have mentioned. What a relief to finally have something new. Now I can go back to working on those autumn animals.

Tried it twice---no dice.

Either it was a momentary glitch that was fixed up ASAP or you were mistaken.

So, yeah... not sure if it'll work for others and I just got the short end of the stick, but breeding Reindeer x Pony always seems to equal another Reindeer... no Santa Claws.

No clue about my avatar... I was playing around with my settings yesterday and not sure what I did-clicked etc
I bred unicorn and reindeer and got a bunch of reindeers. Same results (4-5times) pony & reindeer.
So far reindeer and toy poodle is giving me ferrets.

No clue about my avatar... I was playing around with my settings yesterday and not sure what I did-clicked etc
I bred unicorn and reindeer and got a bunch of reindeers. Same results (4-5times) pony & reindeer.
So far reindeer and toy poodle is giving me ferrets.

You mean the same results for breeding Pyro x Reindeer results in more Reindeer or that you did manage to get a Santa Claws? 'Cause why would you take advantage of a bunch of reindeer? o.o

Got 8 hours with toy poodle and reindeer.
I went through a lot of 3 hour ferret fails.
The good news is that the worst fail for any of the 3 is 7 hours( vinotaur) so let's be grateful.

Well, it seems I'm back again. Anyway, I finally got a hedgehog (still have to try for unicornicopia) but I decided I was tired of breeding earth and nature so I decided to try for the fallaby. I've had a few 3 hour ferret fails but luckily, I got a 7 hour timer a few minutes ago and I'm guessing it's either the poodle or reindeer. At first, I thought it was finally a fallaby but I wasn't sure since I haven't been on forever. I come to check the fallaby's breeding time and sadly it's actually 6 hours :/ oh well I guess I can't complain when I've got a new cute Christmas animal in my grasp. Good luck to everyone :)

I wonder if anyone's tried breeding the Santa Claws with anything to see what results. Like, breeding Crystal Unicorn with Santa Claws (could it be like the Steamtrunk cheat?) or any other combo with it.

Just to cover all bases and all... :D

Edit: Nevermind... Santa Claws is unbreedable. Sorry, guys... looks like TL closed up every loophole on this one in regards to gem gains :(

bumped through a lot more eggs-- looks like I got me a poodle! now that I've got one down, I don't feel so worried lmao.

now I need to update a plot, though... until we find out if the habitat is gonna be winnable or something, these guys are taking up two plots on their own. not that fun.

I SO wish you had been right. Had it been Scare crow + runes, I would not have hesitated even half a second before buying it. Especially since it is finally correctly priced at $10. But alas it seems they will only ever put animals i have in packages and i will never get my crow. :(

ETA: breeding time on both Xmas animals gotten via fire + nature = 7 hours.

You'll see scarecrow on a package sale in the future...

12-05-14, 04:03 PM
If you look at the quest, it says to breed fire & nature. I tried and got 3 hours. While we don't know the breed times on the new guys yet, I doubt it's 3 hours.

I might have one of them in my nest now, but I havn't seen any egg pics yet. I used Fairy Ferret & Pandaffodil this time. I already had two fails, both using different parents & both with 3 hr. Fairy Ferret results. And considering my 63 attempts for Cold Turkey, which, hundreds & hundreds of gems later, I NEVER DID GET, I'm greatful to see results on my 3rd try! Don't know how to upload a snapshot, but I did take one, so hopefully I'll figure it out . I used gems to get it this fast but breeding time is 7 hrs.

I wonder if the new habitat (bc it's Christmas themed), if bought can be put in storage during spring/summer as it might look funny in our forests
Maybe kooky can get us an answer on this.
And if the answer is no, would TL consider making it storagable ( does this word even exist?) during off season period ?

The new Christmas elements seems very unnecessary and stupid. The holiday animals are pretty cool but the new element is kind of annoying, it's a step closer to becoming DS, that freaking game with all of those useless elements. I honestly don't even know why I still play it. I really hope FFS doesn't turn into DS because that'll be a major disappointment and I will most likely give up on the game. And the Holiday Hamlet habitat's price is totally unfair. 500 gems just like all of those premium habitats? It doesn't even hold 4 animals like the others. DS is more fair than this, they didn't release a new element where you had to buy the habitat with gold. I know you can also put them in nature or fire habitats but a lot of people would like the Holiday Hamlet but the price is way too expensive and unfair to so many players. I highly recommend that TL changes the price to coins, because this is just ridiculous! Some holiday spirit...

I just tried Fallaby and Panda... and got a Fairy Ferret! Ugh. I am glad these are short fails but I'm going to be quite unhappy if I don't get one of the new animals soon. Been having so much bad luck breeding lately.

Then again, I have to remember that I can't compare my success to those who spend a lot of money on the game, since I do not. It's ok that I didn't get one of the holiday animals yet... there's plenty of time. I'm not giving into the temptation to speed 173726 times until I get one.

So is this our Christmas event? Or will we also get a community event similar to the Halloween one? Or no event at all?

I hope we get a community event similar to the last one; I really liked that format. I like these three holiday critters, but all this limited breeding business is stressing me out. With the pumpkin collecting, at least we were guaranteed a certain number if we played regularly and timed our planting (though it was still hard for those who didn't have enough large farms). I guess I'm just hoping we won't have too many limited Christmas critters to breed without something else to balance it out.

completely agree, they should at least give us the posibility to put them together like we can do with halloween animals.

so far, my breeding attempts ended with few ferrets, then toy poodle and now i have 7 hours again in the breeding den. i am hoping it will result in reindeer! but i will wait, no need to speed up cause my evolution flower is occupied anyway with treebra.

edit - and it was vinotaur :( so for the moment one toy poodle and 12 fails, mostly ferrets...

I'm going to make a wild guess here and say that the odds for the (obnoxious longer than 3 hour Ferret) rare fails have been set deliberately higher now to make speeding cost more. Once again TL just can't play fair.

I can't wait to get 7 hours only to have it be my third Vinotaur... :mad: Hope that doesn't happen.

Well I just went through 137 gems while speed breeding for there holiday creatures and didn't keep even one of the fails--used pyro/panda, panda/pyro, mostly--nothing worked--all ferrets & 1 vinataur.

i have to say i agree with you. this is just getting weird, i had 20 fails so far (spent around 80 gems) and it seems the odds for new rares have changed. yesterday when the new animals came i managed to get toy poodle after few ferrets. but today it seems like there is nothing but ferrets. i am sure they have messed with the odds, so now i stop spending my gems, i regreted already those i spent but i was so impatient. but i learned my lesson so if i get it great, if i don't... what can you do.

At least Fairy Ferrets have short breeding tines. So far I bred a Vinataur, Fairy Ferret and Jackalope. I have a Fairy Ferret in the nest an a 7 hour creature in the Breeding den. Seems strange to hope its not a Super Rare. :) So I have bred a variation of creatures that I have had for months but it has just resulted in less tries for the creature I want.

Been breeding since yesterday and all day today and I've had all Ferrets, I had three 7 hr times and all 3 were Vinotaurs! Really weird to get 3 super rares but not 1 Christmas. I got one Vinotaur on nest and a 3 hr Ferret fail in breeding pen "sigh"

Same for me. Couldnt breed a vinatour for the life of me when I started playing this game, and now ive breed 3 of them in a row plus countless fairy ferrets. As I have said in past posts, I have NOT been able to breed a single new animal since I breed a bansheep and thats been 2 months ago.

Yay I got the Reindeer! So excited! I was afraid I wouldn't be able to breed one since my luck has been awful recently.

Hopefully we will all have one soon!

Finally have a reindeer egg on the nest, followed by a 6 hour breed. Really hope it's a fallaby! ( but probably a solar simian)

Me too!!! My luck here lately has been terrible on the new animals including all the Fall Animals, I didn't even get the Cold Turkey even though I tried daily. Game stops being so fun when you just go from day to day same old thing.

I have done the jackalope and solar simian combo four times and got two toy poodles and two fairy ferrets. I tried a fallaby and a jackalope and got 7 hours again, not sure of the result yet.

I was able to breed fire and nature and get the poodle. since then, I have gotten 12 ferrets....where is the "randomness" of the breeding? At this rate, I should have the reindeer by Christmas, 2015. And I can't begin to fathom how long it will take to get Santa Claws.

Instead of breeding them, i would rather TL made them in a world event or a summoning like they did last year for DS (Holly and reeinder)
Got lot of ferrets. Much more difficult than for scarecrow or frankenswine :(

Given it's a 26-day event and how many people were unable to breed Cold Turkey during the week that it was available, I don't think that two days with all fails is actually unreasonable. It seems these are going to be fairly rare creatures.

I just got a seven hour timer in my breeding den. I'm putting my money on it being a THIRD Vinotaur (three in the two days this event has been happening is a real kicker). I would rather get Fairy Ferrets - at least those are SHORT fails!

Thank you so much!

Reindeer is now evolving. Between that were two fairy ferrets and now a 6hr timer which is, what, the fallaby? It's something I don't have already, at least.

readysetgo888
12-07-14, 08:13 AM
Just got another 7 hours (using just Panda/Pony) with only 2 Ferrets in between. If it's actually a Poodle I'll be in shock. I can't wait to try breeding my Reindeer once it comes out of the flower.

6 hours is either Fallaby or Simian.

Best of luck to those still trying! If you're really stuck you might try the uninstall/reinstall trick.

Well so far I am

10 fairy ferrets
0 anything else at all
That was yesterday evening. Now I am:
15 fairy ferrets
1 jackalope
0 anything else at all

About half the tries have been pony/panda. The other half of the time I throw in a ferret or jackalope or both or something.

It seems like about 90% of the forum has at least ONE Xmas critter and half of everyone has the full set. I feel particularly unlucky right now. :(

I am also in the zero club, but happy to say I finally have a seven hour breeding time!
With luck it'll be a reindeer or poodle. :-)))

I find it strange, with the short fail times it gives us many more opportunities to get a successful breeding, but it also seems to make us frustrated faster. So it goes. Good luck, everyone! ;-)

edit: I don't believe it, it was a Vinotaur. Got another 7 hours....?

18 fairy ferrets
1 other fail (jackalope)
0 Xmas animals

At least 18/19fails have been only 3 hours. If it were electric-dark they'd all be 17+ hours!!!!!

But I'm getting a little frustrated. Based on responses after I posted my 0-16 record earlier today, it seems only TWO other people on the entire forum besides me are having a complete bust. Maybe more will post tonight and make the 3 of us feel a tiny bit less singled out to be utterly and completely shafted. Eff the RNG in my game. Maybe I'll deleted and reinstall it or something.

So my 6hr egg is a simian (which I do not already have) and right after that is another 6hr breeding time. It'd be neat if it was the fallaby since I don't have that either. (I would be pretty annoyed if I already had both, though, heh. 3hr fails are less offensive than 6hr ones when it comes down to it.)

I had a Simian and Fallaby back to back a couple days ago... so maybe!

I'm in shock... My second 7 hours was another Reindeer, but I tried the Reindeer and Pony combo and actually got the 8 hours! First try! I never thought it would work for me, my luck is always so bad. I'm hoping the Reindeer and Panda combo will get the Poodle.

Zenobia I'd try the uninstall / reinstall. It seemed to help a lot of people in the tournament... maybe it will reset your bad luck.

Well, my fourth 7-hour breed is a Toy Poodle, it's currently on the nest. In my breeding den is a six hour fail since I have all of those at this point.

Going to give a shot at Poodle and Pyro Pony to get Reindeer, and if I'm lucky, Santa Claws.

Though I am still considering that I had a decent number of fails before getting this one, so who knows?

Deleted & reinstalled. Got a 6 hour timer. :(
Wasted 9 gems to speed those and got yet another 3-hour timer.

19 fairy ferrets
2 @6-hour fails
0 Xmas animals

On the bright side, I guess I won't have to figure out where the heck to put these Xmas animals if I never get them. :/

I know it's statistically possible that 90% of players get a Christmas animal within 10 tries and yet I go 0-for-21 and counting, but this debacle is starting to strain my belief that all our odds are equal to each others.

To be fair, zenobia, there are thousands of players out there who don't use these forums and who may be having poor luck as well. I do agree that a lot of people who have posted have at least had a 7hr timer so far. That said, I remember a few players posting about speeding through like 20 nests and not getting anything either. I just find it a bit silly to always go blaming the game -- you were ready to complain about the tournament, too, but you finished way before I did despite a worse start. I dunno, just putting it in perspective.

I just said my belief was being strained not that the game was out to get me. Honestly, when I posted a while ago I was still at zero, I thought I'd see a lot more people still having gotten absolutely nowhere with this. I was ready to feel a little better about being totally shafted (misery loves company and all that). But instead it's almost solely more and more people getting Xmas animals.. and more getting multiple different Xmas animals. Obviously there are tons of people (probably like 90% or more of all players) who don't visit the forum. But there is no reason to think that if forum members have a 20% (or whatever) success rate that the pool of all players has a different success rate. I assume that the 3 of us total who have posted that they still are at zero are not the sum total of players still at zero. But if 90-95% of forum members have gotten at least one friggen Xmas animal, then it stands to reason only 10% of us overall players are getting nothing but fails despite pumping gems into extra breeding opportunities per day. And it just SUX to be in that bottom 5-10%.

I don't even count, so I don't get more bored than I already am, only put breeding and ignore, it's already to much seeing to many time the 3hrs timer.


I also have 2 days worth of fairy ferrets.

Almost the same, Fairy Ferret's everywhere, 1 or 2 Solar Simian's and 2 Fallaby's, at least I got a Fallaby, a animal that I was missing, but 7hrs breeding? Not even once, only in my second account and it was a Vinotaur, besides that Vinotaur, only Fairy Ferret's.

I'm kinda done with this, it's this and the Christmas habitat, 500 gems for a limited habitat that only holds 3 animals? Since it's a 3 animal habitat and limited, at least should be bought with coins or only cost 200 gems and since it's new, on sale for 100 gems like TL does in DS. That habitats I bought, this ones are too much expensive only for a random habitat.

I too have passed through the frustration wall and an sliding down the road to "done with this." Now when I try, I don't even get the slightest bit excited to see what the timer will be. I am resigned to seeing 2:59:59 yet again. It's just not fun. If it were something everyone were having this much trouble with it would be one thing. But tons of people got them super-easily, and tons not as easily but got it nonetheless. A few of us get totally shafted. IDK. In the arena at least it is not 100% luck. If you build up an arsenal of the optimal level 15 super and ultra rares, and login enough times a day, your hard work and strategy pay off even if you start out terribly one tournament. I've never lost a single tournament in this game and I've played since before the first one. But breeding is 100% luck. If I wanted a game where only one aspect of the game once a month was less than 100% luck-based, I'd play bingo or slots. This game is just too much about luck. And when a game is all about luck, always a few people are going to get totally and completely shafted despite being as dedicated and putting in as much time or more than anyone else. And that is just NOT. FUN. Not for those of us getting shafted. I've been saying for 3 months now I wish they'd change the game so that if you are clearly trying for something many, many, many, many times (like the unicorn for most of us), that after a certain amount of tries, your odds get just a little better. Then after another milestone reached with still a 0% success rate, the odds get a little better yet. I don't think they should ever get up to 100% or even 50% or anything close to that. Just fix it so that those having HORRIBLE luck, and never rolling a high number, eventually the highest of the sucky low numbers their RNG deems fit to roll for them is high enough to get the animal of that combo you don't have yet.

I know they'll never do that. But I'll never stop wishing for it. Well, when the 100% luck-based nature of the game takes the last ounce of fun out of it, I'll stop wishing for it because I'll be gone lol. :p

I play FFS and DS, sometimes I get to the point when I'm already using the same combo, and don't get any new or not even a Rare or Super Rare, I get to much pissed off, but since I like both games, I just put the breed and see the timer only to see what time I got, don't even get excited at all. But if a see a timer that only has 1 option and I already have, I know what it is, but when it's a timer that has more than 1 option, I think it's a common one, like everybody does, but sometimes when I put the egg on the nest, I get surprised to see a new egg, at least some luck. I already have 2 Crystal Unicorn's, I was trying to get a couple new animals that I don't have and didn't even remember about Unicorn on that combo, this on my first try, on my second try I was trying, again, for new animals that I'm still missing and when I see a 45 timer I was like "really? another crystal? come on, new ones game!", since TL releases animals like they change underwear, a 45 timer is kinda of a waste of time, but it's a Ultra Rare animal and with 2 of them I can use to breed, battle and have more coins. My luck when it comes to breeding sometimes it's like "hmm now I don't want to give you anything new and you will receive only common fails, that don't even give you nive gems!" and other times it's like "your reaction when you get fails it's awesome, but this time I will give you 1 or more new animals/dragons or even 1 or 2 more from the new ones you got just now!".
About the tournaments, we need luck and good fighters, never lost any tournament on both games (only 2 on DS, but don't count since I start one with the tournament already in the middle and the other one I didn't had good fighters and dragons evolve enough to defeat the beasts to even pass from the 15 round ahah).

Now I just want to see what the heck will TL do for the Christmas World Event's on both games, on DS I think we will have one this Tuesday (Dec. 9th), hope we have also one in FFS.

In the last month I have managed to breed 4 new animals, and in the month before that, 4 (though 1 of those 4 was the steam trunk ruby razorback loophole they gave us for a day, so I don't really think that counts - the odds were 100% on that pairing for that day)... So if you don't count the 100% odds one, it's 7 new breedings in 2 months. A new one every 8.5 days on average is not nearly as bad as it could be. I guess I'm just stressing because these are limited and the majority of players are not having the problems a few of us are. And also stressing because it very much seems that the odds on any newly released animal go down after a day or so. So there was a window. And most players got at least one Xmas animal in that window. So it just feels like those of us who got screwed 20 times or more when the odds were at their BEST are doomed. I'm just being pessimistic. I guess I'll never get over not getting the Scare Crow despite trying 24/7 and a lot of speed breeding the entire time it was available. I FLOVE crows, too. Maybe I should just not even try for these. Maybe I'll be slightly less disappointed getting tons of fails while trying for permanent as opposed to limited animals.

My running total:
22 fairy ferrets
2 @6-hour fails
0 Xmas animals

Zen..have you tried fallaby and rhino combo for reindeer? And I also used a rampage and sloth trying for a unicornucopia. Hope this helps. Once I got reindeer, I used reindeer and panda and got poodle. Sending good luck to all who don't have Xmas critters.

12-07-14, 08:58 PM
I also have no Christmas animals - loads and loads of fails.. If I had the fallaby, I'd use it to breed but I can't even get one of those. Just ferrit after bleeping ferrit.

Been trying since I first noticed the new critters (a few hours after dropping.) I just got my first Christmas animal! I saw 7 hrs. in the den, so I sped & moved the stupid Fairy Ferret egg out of the way, lol! It's the Poodle egg--yay!

So then, I put panda & pony back in the den, and got another 7 hrs! I hope, hope, hope (fingers crossed & all that) it's a reindeer...& not another Poodle or Vinotaur.

I also got a Fallaby while trying to breed these (my 2nd fall animal--got the unicornicopia a few days ago.) Prior to that, nothing. I've been trying for the fall and/or limited animals non-stop without luck. I can't believe it, but it's good to get at least a couple! Hope it keeps going, though, and I hope those who haven't been lucky start breeding these pronto!!!

Best of luck, all!

I too had at least 22 or more ferret fails, several Fallabys, and several vinotaurs, and 1 other animal I can't remember right now. it was very disheartening, spent lots of gems for repeated 3 hour fails. I just keep repeating the breeding until I got the reindeer, now have poodle & claus as well. Don't give up!

30 tries so far got me: 3 toy poodles, 1 vinotaur, 1 solar simian, 3 jackalopes and 22 ferrets.

Since i level up my toy poodle (i kept only one cause i am not keeping duplicates anymore) to level 10 i have been putting him and pony or panda in the den. Yesterday when i saw 7 hours i was really hoping it will be a reindeer but no, poodle again... so i put again this combo, got 7 hours again but i am ready to see another poodle later.

Take the complaining to the DS forums. People seem to think they are entitled to everything this game offers immediately. You have 4 weeks to get your holiday breeds, relax.

I don't complain about not having a Crystal Unicorn, or any of the gem hybrids that were easily gotten during their release. My income is extremely stunted and progression slowed because of this, and I've dealt with it. Now deal with your 3 hour commons.


Turning out exactly like DS.

Anyword on if not being able to breed my Santa Claws is a glitch or is it like that for everyone?
I can breed my raindeer but Santa Claws doesn't show up on my breeding list.

I hate feeling like I'm the only one unable to breed even a single one of these animals. :(

I know there's lots of time left but the game ceases to be fun after a number of days of this []

Hey zen :) your not the only one...since this goal was released alls i have gotten are ferrets :( id be happy with a vinotour which iv been trying to get cz i wanted the toucan so you can imagin how many ferrets iv gotten in the last few weeks!! So frustrating!!

Same for me (but i already had vinotaur so i'm not trying for)
The worse is that ferret doesn't give bomb, so you even can't mine and do expansion :mad:

I finally got a reindeer using Panda X Vinotaur. I got two vinotaurs amongst all the fairy Ferrets.

I got the poodle today.

The rest is ferrets and occasionaly a jackalope and a fallaby.

After the poodle gets out the flower, going to use it in the breeding den.

See, it's almost as though 99% of this forum is not getting christmas breeds in the first .2 hours. Yeah, bad luck sucks, but not everyone got lucky and/or sped-bred their way to new animals either? C:

Anyway, update on my own progress (doubt anyone cares, but here it is). After my 6hr solar simian, the other 6hr did turn out to be a fallaby. Score. Then I think I had a couple of fairy ferrets, and now I have a 7hr time in the nest. No clue what it is, but if it's not the poodle then I already have it.

I finally got the Reindeer! So I decided to try the Vinotaur/ Ocean Owl combo in the den just to take a break from Panda/ Pony and I got another 7 hours. I was so excited until I put the egg on the nest and it was a Skyger! Completely forgot you can get a Skyger with that combo! Lol bummer. Once my Reindeer evolves I'm going to try breeding him with Pony like other people have gotten lucky with. Still need a Fallaby too. Don't give up everyone! We still have so many days to get these Christmas critters. When I was trying for the Cold Turkey, and found myself getting frustrated, I would try for something else I was missing just once to break up the back to back water/ earth. I ended up getting my Porcupine that way. I know how aggravating it can be. I have been level 40 for awhile now and have been playing since July and I still don't have a Crystal. It stings a little when I see lower level players with a Crystal but once I finally get mine it will be that much sweeter. Never give up hope! In game and in life.

I finally got one Reindeer after many fails and I got a Solar Simian which I don't have on my iPhone yet so that is good anyway. I too have had far too many fails but gave up trying for the earth nature or others I'm missing because I get the same stupid Planters over and over

Incredible luck here: raindeer on 2nd try and poodle on 3rd! :-O
Probably as a compensation for the impossibly bad luck when trying for the Frankenswine (how about 3 Pegasi out of the last 4 attempts?)

Got my 4th toy poodle, and still no reindeer... looks like breeding with toy poodle will get me only more of them. Not sure what combination to try next for a reindeer...

I got my first Reindeer with Fallaby X Panda and my second Reindeer with Panda X Pony.

It does seem that Reindeer X Pony AND Reindeer X Panda can both get the Santa Claws, as I've gotten one Santa Claws from each combo. I highly recommend trying these ASAP if you have a Reindeer.

I was hoping that Reindeer X Panda would get me the Poodle, but no Poodle for me yet (tried it twice, got Ferret once and Santa Claws once). I'm going to try some of the other combos people have posted for the Poodle... If you have any, please share!

i tried many combinations but since i got my first poodle evolved i started to put him in the breeding den. first with a pony, then with panda. i think i made a mistake by breeding it with panda cause there is no fire in that combination and reindeer has a fire element. so i switched back to poodle and pony, got another ferret. at least is a 3 hours fail, not 7... i will try few more times i guess, then maybe switch again to what you suggested. thanks :)


I used the fallaby and panda for reindeer

tried that combination 6 times, got 5 ferrets and one jackalope. how many times did it take for you with that combination? maybe i gave up to early...

No Christmas animals yet, just a lot of fairy ferrets, a couple of solar simians and one evil evil vinotaur who got my hopes up with a 7 hour timer ;)

Still lots of time though, and I'm really hoping we get a Christmas world event tomorrow because they're always fairly fun.

I sure hope they offer us another way to get the habitat cause I am no way spending 500 gems to get one!!!

I don't even want one - it will have to be out ALL YEAR since, because this game isn't annoying and frustrating enough, we aren't allowed to store habitats. I'm not a huge fan of the idea of looking at this thing in July.

Plus, they deliberately made it so that if you want to have all three holiday animals in the same habitat, you HAVE to buy the Christmas habitat because they don't all have another element in common. That's a shameless tactic to make people buy it in my opinion. I don't feel like rewarding that.

And let's see, habitat costs $25 ACTUAL DOLLARS. Uhhh no. As usual, if I HAD to spend that money on this game I'd much rather have the gems to try to get animals I don't have yet. And since I don't have to spend it on this game, I've got a dinner out instead, or a variety of other things I'd rather have than this Christmas habitat that will only be appropriate decor for my forest exactly 1/12 of the year.

Hmm... 500 gems is $20 over here (530 gems, actually). I've spent hundreds of dollars on mobile games but $20 for one habitat isn't the kind of deal I'd personally go for. That said, if we DO get a holiday habitat through an event, it 99% won't be this one, as otherwise they'd have an even worse PR issue on their hands with anyone who has bought the habitat earlier complaining about people getting it for free / demanding a gem refund / etc. I'm sure there will be some kind of sale on it later on, but given what I've read on these boards, the FFS sales have not been overly generous.

I got my Reindeer egg this morning (after my 5th vinotaur and countless ferrets!) so now I'm breathing easier. Yes, we have a lot of time for these guys but I'm still bummed about missing the Cold Turkey despite working on it all week. Now I have to decide whether to try for Santa Claws right away or keep working on Harvest Hedgehog. (Like others, I'm convinced the fall critters are going to go limited on us soon.)

Good luck to everyone! I wish there was some sort of exchange system where I could trade all my excess Vinotaurs with those of you who need them, in exchange for all your extras that I still haven't gotten!

Definitely try for Santa Claws with Pony X Reindeer and/or Panda X Reindeer a few times... I'm not sure if this is something that they meant to allow, but it definitely seems like the odds on getting one with these combos are really good.

I've pretty much given up on the Harvest Hedgehog :( I feel like I would have gotten it if I was going to by now. I still really want it but I just feel like it's one of those animals that the game has decided that I can't have.

If it does go limited, I still won't try much for it, as based on the other limited animals, the odds will get even worse.

Kooky, can you please find out if the new Christmas habitat can be stored after Christmas or if we'll be forced to keep it on display at all time?

It will function like other habitats, so it cannot be stored.

Oh goodness! So my 7hr breeding time has given me a poodle egg. Really surprised at my luck. (A bit sad that out of the three animals, the one I am most interest in is the lion, though. Kinda wondering where this bout of good luck will bite me later. :p) I put in my reindeer + a pyro pony into the nest while I'm waiting for the poodle to hatch and got another 7hr timer. Erm. Well, it's not the santa claws and I won't be keeping duplicates...

so, here's a thought. which fail out of all these new animals is worse? ;) ferret for these guys, rainguin for the turkey, or the plantlers for the fall animals?

Obviously Plantlers, since it's such a long time to wait inbetween breedings.

So I'm curious, specially since staff has yet to comment on the matter...

The goal says to get Santa Claw you must breed Reindeer with Poodle (very specific). Yet, some people have been able to breed it just by having the animals type in the breeding pool (Christmas/Fire).

Is this intended behavior or a bug? Is it ok to keep trying for Santa with a combo like Reindeer and Pony or is this something that has/will be fixed? It would be good to know one way or another so people aren't wasting time and gems on a bug....
