The Wonder Of Crayfish

Have you ever seen a small creature that looks like a mini lobster? That is probably a crayfish and they are small creatures. They live in many places. They have small pincers and are an interesting animal in many ways.

Crayfish mostly live in Europe and New Zealand but throughout the world. They do not survive in saltwater. They live in fresh water like lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. They are common under rocks and in dark places.

Some times they look like mini lobsters. The crayfish is normally a shade of red, gray and black. Crayfish are usually about 5 inches to 6 inches.

Have you ever wondered if a crayfish is related to a crab? Well it is and they are animal cousins.

I hope you learned something about crayfish. Also check out http://mackers.com/crayfish/ and animal.discovery.com/marine-life/crayfish-info.htm for more information.
