Question of the Week – Crayfish

Posted by romeethredge on November 14, 2014

Last week I had a photo of something we found in Spring Creek on a log. It was the claw of a crayfish. I suppose an otter ate most of it and left this on the log.

Dr. Chris Skelton of  Georgia College in Millegeville,  identified it as the “White Tubercled Crayfish (Procambarus spiculifer).  It is one of our most common stream dwellers.  Named for the white bumps on the claws.”

Dr. Skelton has a good website concerning Crayfish of Georgia.

This week’s question involves birds. What are these large birds that flew over us on Lake George near Fort Gaines last week?

    Same as a song released by Fleetwood Mac in 1968?
