Welcome - to the forum.

I wish I could tell these sharks are easy to find - but they are not. Most of the South African sharks are very difficult to find in North America. But not impossible either. Basically you need to talk some of the bigger importers who work with public aquariums. Also expect them to be quite expensive - say about $2,000.

Yeah - that is a pretty common problem when trying to find rare species or rather species which are rare in North America. It basically is going to take time & patients.
