I agree with everything John has said.

As for what you should be breeding and selling, try to pick things both that interest you, and that people really want. I don't see much of a market for either of the species you have mentioned, and you won't get very much for them. Since it takes the same amount of work to care for a valuable animal and a less valuable animal, set your sights a little higher. I personally prefer not to breed anything that does not have the potential to produce offspring worth at least $150. For example, you are interested in broad-headed skinks. Why not consider a type of skink that has more market demand, such as a pink-tongued or blue-tongued skink? You'd have to spend more on your initial breeding stock, but it would be worth it in the long run.
