    So after searching i've not been able to find anyone who breeds small skink species i've had little success, so what are others opinions on collecting specimens from the wild to breed? (with correct permits ofc.)

    It would be awesome if you could do it, I think it would be near impossible to get the permits though.

    The only way I see to get a collecting license is to be doing a study on them for university and the like or move to Tasmania.

    Keep an eye on Gumtree and the FB reptile groups. Eastern water skinks pop up from time to time. There was a guy in Adelaide that bred them at one stage, not sure if he still does, or if he freights though.
