When we went to Heckrodt Wetland Reserve on Saturday, we saw a tank with baby crayfish in it.  They were only about 1/2 inch long.  The lady that works at Heckrodt told me that when they first got them they were even smaller.

Crayfish are also called crawfish or crawdads.  There are lots of different kinds of crayfish, and I don’t know what kind this is.  But they were really fun to watch swim around.  Maybe they’ll grow up to be a red swamp crayfish?
