In DragonVale, Limited Dragons can only be bred for a small timeframe, usually anywhere from a few days to a month or more, depending on the specific dragon.
Limited Dragons can be some of the more rare dragons in the game, especially if they are Epic as well like the Leap Year Dragon.
Here is a list of all of the Limited Dragons I have found so far, and what you need to breed to get them.

Apocalypse Dragon – The Mayan end of days are upon us, so get this extremely limited dragon while you can!
