Doubt you'll find any, pretty sure they're quite hard to establish in captivity so those that are available will most likely be wild caught and will cost way into the thousands. Although I believe someone on here has started a breeding project for sungazers in the aid of conservation which is brilliant as they're getting pretty endangered, though I doubt they'd be selling any anytime soon.
Have you looked into plated lizards? They look pretty similar and are quite readily available, easy to tame and care for:)

I keep a pair of Sungazers at the moment and administer the European Studbook for both S. giganteus and O. cataphractus.

Check out my web site - www.smauggiganteus.com for more information.

As the previous post suggests, both species are rare here in the UK and if you are able to find some at one of the European Shows, expect to pay around £2000 for a pair.

Did you ever see either species in the wild?
