First time I've seen a Crawfish so the ID may be wrong.

Description

A large (at least 6 inches long, looked like a small lobster) freshwater crayfish was seen in a water puddle on the prairie after the rain. There appeared be a tunnel next to the crayfish that was its home. The tunnel was at the base of a bunch of of grass, and appeared to head straight down.
Seen while on "The Great North Texas Prairie Tour". The crayfish was behaving aggressively toward the humans in the tour group.

Description from Wikipedia

Cambaridae is the largest of the three families of freshwater crayfish, with over 400 species. Most of the species in the family are native to North America east of the Great Divide, such as the invasive species Procambarus clarkii and Orconectes rusticus, with fewer species living in East Asia and Japan, such as zarigani (Cambaroides japonicus).
