I would suggest you get captive bred animals from our very own reptile breeders here in South Africa. There are several herpetological societies in the Gauteng region alone, such as the East Rand herpetological society, Transvaal Herpetological Society etc. The Pretoria Natural History musuem should have contact details for some of these societies, as would your local zoo.
