Tuesday Crustie: Caving

This week, I am in Florida to collect crayfish and sand crabs. Florida is a hotbed of crayfish species, with over 50 species, while the much bigger state of Texas doesn’t even top 40. Unfortunately, I won’t have the time to look for all the species, particularly ones like this...

This is the Putnam County Cave Crayfish (Procambarus morrisi). It is critically endangered. It lives one cave. And people are doing things like scuba diving and dumping garbage in the cave.
