Creature Comforts: Crawfish, Crayfish, & Mudbugs

Mississippi has 63 different species of crawfish that call it home, including the smallest crawfish species in the world. Today on this episode of Creature Comforts we welcome Paul Hartfield, biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to talk about these crawfish. What are their role in the ecosystem, where are they found, and what to do if you find a straight tail crawfish at your crawfish boil. As we talk about great social distancing activities that will bring you closer to nature while staying safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
