Fun with Creepy Crawly Lake Monsters

Okay..kids put that thing back!

Yes they do pinch very hard!
Yes they do pinch very hard!

This is the biggest one our son, George has every caught! His first gift to a girl…sort of.

We had some friends from China over and they were thrilled this these creatures.I am truly amazed at these fearless little girls! Half of George’s friends won’t even pick these up!

I don't see what's so intriguing? I just see gross!
And George thought he was going to see these girls go running and screaming after he showed them what he caught.

I must admit, I have eaten them before and they are very good. But they are serving a purpose here on the lake. So no crayfish soup or boil today.

Look at this one…full of eggs. She has to go back in the lake!

Wow..that's a lot of baby crayfish eggs!
Wow..that’s a lot of baby crayfish eggs! Science in the back yard!
Now they have mom involved!
Now they have mom involved!

Just thought I would share. Happy Creepy Crawly Crayfish Day!

  1. It looks like they had a lot of fun, I’ve never actually seen a crawfish carrying eggs. Never eaten them either but they’re a camping delicacy around here.
