I don’t know anything about how Crayfish reproduce, but they must be very good at it. This small swamp area is landlocked except for a time of heavy rain.
Barred Owls have been hunting them for years right here. The water can get low at times, but there is always a few Crayfish around.
Crayfish are popular in Creole dishes, especially around New Orleans and Jackson, Mississippi. Now that i have seen them in my local swamps… it kind of creeps me out !!!!
