Tuesday Crustie: Down in the underground

This week’s picture of a burrowing crayfish, Engaeus granulatus, is inspired by a recent radio essay by Susan Lawler, which talks about her adventures working with (or, mor accurately, trying to dig up) members of this genus. You can read a transcript here, but do yourself a favour and listen to the audio, if for no other reason than to hear her imitate the past president of the International Association of Astacology.

Picture from here.
