Crayfish

Crayfish, crawfish, crawdad, New Mexico

My one photo of a crayfish thus far tells a story. After a bird found the crayfish, dead or alive, it took it to a concrete footbridge over an irrigation canal and ate the innards. It also pooped before flying off. New Mexico's crayfish include invasive species. I grew up calling them crawfish; you may have grown up calling them crawdads or some other name.
