Why do you ask? I assume you mean working with them alive in captivity?

There are a few live female dofleini in one zoo, and possibly some in private collections in Europe. There are no Bolitoglossa being exported from anywhere legally for the pet trade right now.

When I was in Galapagos they were saying there is actually a Bolittaglossa that's established there as an alien species. Perhaps it will be beneficial to collect them from there but I think the chance of getting them into the US is slim as the Galapagos are very strict but wouldn't it be a cool project to pay an islander to remove as many as possible since they shouldn't be there and perhaps establish said species in captivity? Maybe if they collected long and hard enough it could limit their spread on the island.
