    Count Crawdad’s, sounds like a good name for a bar in Cajun country.

    It’s pretty obvious the “predator” is going to be exposed.

    The questions now are will Alix admit to putting it there? And will it be “removed” or left there.

    This will end up as a terrific ecology lesson for Alix.

    Hi Skulker,
    Also, is there any chance it has reproduced?

    Depends on how bored Ms. Eliot was.

    Depends on what species of crawdad it is. Some species are able to reproduce by parthenogenesis, so it is possible.

    @Bald fat and ugly

    On the surface, your suggestion sounds good. However, we do not have crawdads in South Louisiana. We have crawfish. The difference is that crawdads, at best, are only big enough to use as fish bait and crawfish are big enough to use a very tasty food source.

    Looks like Alix and Gramma will soon be on their way to Federal prison.

    From Wikipedia: Crayfish – also called crawfish,crawdads, freshwater lobsters, or mudbugs – are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters, to which they are related; taxonomically, they are members of the superfamilies Astacoidea and Parastacoidea. (

    Also looked at the referenced sites, seems like it mostly just the same species, but depending on the place, has different names!

    My daughter and I still talk about when I took her catching crayfish. I hope her and/or I will be able to to do the same with her children. It’s way fun even when you get pinched.
