I live along the upper east coast of the US in Rhode island and am interested in seeing just how inexpensive it is to obtain a good amount of these little critters :)

Welcome to Tonmo, FrisbeeFanatic.

It would be pretty difficult to obtain one since they are only found in Hawaii and aren't available on the market. The NRCC has them, but only will sell them for educational purposes. Plus they don't make that great of pets, they're nocturnal and only live for 3-11 months and about 90% of the time they'll be buried under the sand.
