    I have yet to find any breeders myself. (Maybe I'm not looking hard enough lol). I've read though it's really hard to breed Blue Tongue Skink and that most of the ones you find are wild caught.

    Check out bluetongueskinks.net

    I believe they have a breeder listing.
    Let's clear something up. "Whole prey" has nothing to do with whether or not the prey item has a back bone. "Whole prey" just means that the prey item is being fed in its entirety: brains, heart, lungs, blood, the entire animal. Whole animal+intention of feeding it to another animal=Whole Prey.

    I thought it was illegal to export wild caught reptiles from Australia... or does that not apply to all species?

    Have you (or anyone else reading this) made any purchases from them? If so, what was the outcome?

    Local rescues are another option, taking in a blue tongue in need of a home!

    That would be a great option. Unfortunately, there isn't much around here. Two rescue places I know of in the state have a lot of snakes, 1 bearded dragon, and that is it.

    Re: Northern Blue Tongue Skink - Where to Buy?

    I swear I've read somewhere they are wild caught. I was looking for a breeder for future reference and I stumbled upon that. Maybe I'm thinking of a different species of skink.

    It is illegal to export Australian fauna.
    Almost every reptile show I have been to had someone selling baby blueys
