Rusty Crayfish

Rusty crayfish

Rusty crayfish are omnivores, consuming many food sources such as plants, animals, organic material, sediment, etc. They prefer areas with rocks, logs, or other debris for shelter. Males and females mate in late summer, early fall, or early spring. Females can lay between 80 and 575 eggs. Eggs hatch in three to six weeks, depending on water temperature. The young stay with the female for several weeks after hatching. Their expected lifespan is three to four years.
