Crayfish Chimneys

Astacoidea

Description:

Crayfish – also called crawfish or crawdads – are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters. They breathe through feather-like gills and are found in bodies of water that do not freeze to the bottom. They are mostly found in brooks and streams where there is fresh water running, and which have shelter against predators. Most crayfish cannot tolerate polluted water.

Habitat:

Near a puddle under the road bridge at the end of the path through an urban park.
