We have lots of crawdads in our yard. They are usually near creeks, but we are pretty confident there are some underground streams in our yard. I have never seen a live one at our house, only their shells. Chris and the boys catch them all the time. I came home the other night and Chris got out the camera to show me a few pictures he had taken. Here’s the first one. He asked me why the crawdad was so angry.
Could it be the two boys messing with her?
Maybe it was the boys. Or maybe it was the boys messing with her while she was so ‘pregnant’, he said. What!? I asked….
A closer look…
Yep, that grossed me out too. I think I might have screamed actually. No wonder she was up in arms. Who wants to be carrying that many babies and picked on by two boys! She should have got them with those claws, I would have understood.
For my friend who read the blog and learned that Sunflower seeds come from Sunflowers…this can be another science lesson. come from Crawdads.
