I just saw crayfish just like these at my lfs. Are these rare?

Some people say these ones are one of the harder species to come by and apparently sell for 50-100 bucks in most places!

I don't know about where you are, but at the LFS I work at, they're not that rare and not that expensive (around $20). It may not be the same species though.

If you plan on getting one though ... be careful, they'll go after your other fish and they can get huge.

In the wild albino/white animals are very rare as they don't usually survive. In the aquarium hobby however they are usually pretty common. I've seen white/albino versions of a few types of crayfish at the LFSs around here.
