Egernia, or their common name Gidgee skinks. Native to Australia, (of course, where all the coolest stuff is). Western regions I believe.

I thought they looked familiar ,, but wasn't sure with you being o/seas .
Probably not likely to find a breeder who has a genuine captive breeding colony of captively bred gidgees outside Australia .
Is the breeder sure they are gidgees ? , as they look more like egermia depressia (Southern (pygmie) spiney tail skinks ) on checking my Skink bible by Dr.Brown.
Check out p202 in Brown if you have access to a copy.
More rounded snout, stockiness, patterning (spots) and coloration.

Last time I saw some gidgees for sale were
http://www.reptileclassifieds.com.au/ad ... dgee-pair/ wanted $300 for the pair.
http://www.reptileclassifieds.com.au/ad ... -babies-2/ wanted $120 for a baby ( in SA so too far away for me ).
http://www.reptileclassifieds.com.au/ad ... enclosure/ wanted $150 for 3yr old ( Brisbane ).
http://www.reptileclassifieds.com.au/ads/gidgee-skink/ wanted $170 , was a local sale and I missed out , was sold when I called them (bummer) , would have preferred a mixed pair .
Look similar http://www.reptileclassifieds.com.au/ad ... nk-colony/ but at $2500 for E. cygnitos is way too expensive for me.

What do they demand for them where you are ?

Around here, all Egernias are called Gidgees. We have a handful of breeders working with them. I will find out their exact locale when I go back on Sunday.
