That enclosure would probably be OK for one frilly as long as it is 5 feet high. 2 feet wide is a little tight, but would work fine for a NG (aussies are bigger typically).
They are pretty much insectivorous but adults gobble down rodents, and occasionally you can get them to eat fruit and vegetable matter.
Prices depend on the kind. For an import (farmed in indonesia--often advertised as "cb"), you may be able to find one for around $125. For a captive bred and born in the US (by a breeder) baby you are looking at $150-225 for a NG (unless you go to a petstore where I've seen them up to $500--even for imports). Adults tend to be more $--adult females the most $. Aussies--I dont know if there are any aussies left for the year but they run around $175-300 for babies. Red aussies $250-1000, again I dont think there are any more around this year.
Hope that helps.

:First, will i be able to house an adult in a 5x2x2 enclosure? Second, are they handleable, and tolerable to handling?? Third, I have heard that they are entirely incectivorious, is that true??? Forth, What is a resonable price for a baby???? Thank you so much for any help.
