that would be fine as i have ways of curbing the population so to speak...i find the crustaceans in particular interesting..i have a number but none of the ones you have obtained..if things work out for you let me know.

Yeah, I may end up with three adults here soon. The woman I got them from is getting rid of them and she said I could just take them. The babies that are born will mainly be used as feeders for my shiners and other crays, and some day soon they will be fed to a tegu :D

I love love love these crays though. I got two at the store near me that were feeder crays. Still trying to ID them, but I know for sure that one is male and the other female. Watched the female dig herself a nice little 'den' under a rock. Was really neat. I believe she's about to shed too.

That's pretty darn interesting. Can you imagine all the different colored cloning cray?!?!
- There are NO male cloning crayfish, they don't mate, with anything.
- Crayfish don't mate with lobsters.
- Cloning crayfish change color depending on their diet.

That is all :)
