Ok so this is pretty simple if you have friends that have this game. First you need to donate animals to each other.

So while in the edit exhibit menu chose animals then chose view animal find the one you want then select it. From the edit animal menu go to trade and then select donate. From there you will select the friend to send it to.

Next you will need to get the animal donated to you. After get back to the animals screen in the exhibit go to donated animals from there you will select the animal and then you can breed. Hopefully you've alread done that before but if not make sure you have a breeding center and a staff member assigned to that exhibit.

If something is not clear please let me know.

I almost forgot its been reported that lvl 15 animals do not breed so do not use them just to be safe.

Update* Super Fly 1988, says he has been able to breed lvl 15 animals, which may yet be another difference between the 360 and the xb1 versions

Update ** I tried to get my lvl 15s to breed but no dice.

Update*** campotech says you can get this with with multiple profiles on the same console
