  1. Hi genghisprawn,

    Nice site you’ve got going here, which I found through Nature Blog Network. I’ve added you to my “Insects & Invertebrates” blogroll, and I hope you’ll consider linking to my blog, Beetles In The Bush.

  2. I wonder if you can help me identify a crab. Today I was walking along a freshwater river and came across the remains of a crab. The only thing left were the claws, both the same size.

    A crayfish claw

    The river is fressh water, and is a good 10-15 miles away from the ocean, here is the location I found it on a map.

    Many thanks for any light you can shine.

  3. Hello, Carl.

    Given the shape of these claws (with the dactylus or movable “finger” above the immobile part — diagram here), it’s safe to say that they actually belonged to a Cambarid crayfish. You can find a list of the species native to New Hampshire here (which would indicate that the remains were of a species of Orconectes). Since the claws look too intact to be from an exuvium (an shed exoskeleton), I would guess them to be leftovers from a raccoon’s meal.

    Hope this helps!
