Coyaba “Crayfish”

Image from here.

As the display caption says, a “crayfish” (actually a prawn, Macrobrachium carcinus) from the Coyaba River in Ocho Rios (Saint Ann Parish, northern Jamaica).  The photographer refers to the creature as extinct, which certainly is not true in Jamaica as a whole, and — I would hope — not in the Coyaba either.

  1. That’s some Macrobrachium!
