Who should I ask - finding some herps

Hi all,

There are a couple of species of reptiles I've been looking for. I know that most often, when they come in, they are inexpensive imports. I have almost never seen CB specimens available, and I would really like to try establishing some groups. The animals I'm looking for are:

Acontias percivali, or other Acontias species (legless skinks, lance skinks)

The species I'm most interested is small, brown on top with an orange belly. They have tiny eyes, and appear to almost have no eyelids.

and

Lepidophyma flavimaculatum (night lizard, bark lizard, etc)

If these names do not sound familiar, here are links to some photos of each:

Skink:

Night lizard:

Now, to get either of these, I think I have to go through a store or supplier or something. I'm in Vancouver, and don't really know where to start. Is my only option to go to pet stores to see if they can get them in?

If anyone has any clue what I'm talking about, or can help point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate any advice you can give...

Thanks! I sent messages to both massasauga and mirdo - I'm sure at the time they came from either or.
