Found in a floodplain wet meadow.
This is what I found at the Los Angeles River a day after the rain. It was laying on the sand dead. It had been washed ashore. :-( I did not know this could be found at the L.A River. Wondering if there are anymore or was it just my luck to find the only one.
Multiple conspicuous holes in the ground; one bleached carapace. This is near a creek and old farmland. I know there are species of prairie crawfish, and look forward to learning more.

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).
