I spent over an hour watching 3-4 crayfish, including this one, fight with each other in the small stream connecting Adamant Pond and Sodom Pond.
before I caught it I saw it fight with, kill and eat a smaller one
Might be a juvenile. Or it could be a different species. Was brown and was pretty big.
The claw of an unlucky one.
Juvenile. Was very jumpy.
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).
