Sure, do tell.

I used to catch them in a local creek here in Ontario; less that a foot
of water. but always submerged. I have a (very) old gardening book that
lists them as a "lawn pest" and that they make hills out of mud. Maybe
in the US south, but not here...

Keep in mind though there's hundreds of species of crayfish.

The blue ones are an Australian species.
