Creature Feature #136: Crawdad/Crayfish

Crayfish, or Crawdad, is the name commonly given to freshwater lobsters. These crustaceans make their home in bodies of water that do not freeze to the floor, with a preference for running water and lots of crevices to hide in. An omnivore, she feeds predominently on dead plant and animal matter, along with anything living she can locate as she scuttles across her aquatic habitat. She is vulnerable to pollution, and also features on menus across the world.
