In Dragonvale I noticed breeding two Pang Long dragons yields another Pan Long dragon, and advice for breeding Holiday dragons on the Dragonvale wiki suggests you can only get expired time-limited dragons by breeding two of the same dragon.

Does breeding two of the same dragon always give another one of the same dragon, or can they mix and create a hybrid dragon like other dragons?

Generally they will breed a child of the same exact type, at least 95% of the time in my experience. However they can breed a hybrid of their elements.

When breeding two Chrome dragons (air/metal) repeatedly I found that once I got a Rust dragon (Metal+water)! This is because, apparently, on rare occasion an Air dragon breeds as a fire or water dragon instead of an air dragon.

I think this answer may be out of date. I think same pairs now always result in the same child (no hybrid splits). Also, I believe gem dragons are an exception (individuals are "sterile"). –  EBongo Jun 21 '12 at 0:52

I am almost positive they can mix and create a hybrid dragon. I am trying to remember if it happened to me, but I can't seem to recall... It is most likely that it creates the same type of dragon, but I believe it is possible to have a random combination of the elements within the dragon, as long as it is not one of the basic dragons of course.

I've been meaning to test this by breeding my Pang Long dragons a bunch (4 elements, lots of possible non-Pang Long kids) but I haven't gotten to do it yet –  Ben Brocka Mar 29 '12 at 21:47
    
That's a good idea. Unfortunately I only have 1 panlong so I will have to test it with something else. I tend to get rid of my doubles, only double I had currently is moss. I'll start breeding those and tell you my findings. So far after 2 tries they have both been another moss. Panlong is probably smarter so I may try to make another and test them together. This is an interesting question... –  Zeff520 Mar 29 '12 at 23:10
    
Doubles are what the hibernation cave is for! –  Ben Brocka Jun 21 '12 at 0:55

I have been breeding two iron dragons for cash for about a month solid. It has always been another iron. Then today 10-11-13 two iron dragons gave me a bronze dragon. I would say they do have a chance to give you something else.
