Picture of the Day: Giant Crayfish Taking Over the Planet
TAKING OVER THE PLANET
This photo will make you do a ‘double-take’. At first glance it kind of looks like a gigantic crayfish on a metallic, Earth-like planet with stars in the background. Upon closer inspection it’s really just a small crayfish at the bottom of a metal bucket, with drops of water on the sides.
The photo was posted to reddit by user renegadepathfinder. The submission reached the top spot on reddit’s front page four days ago and the imgur-hosted file has already been viewed a staggering 3.4 million times.
Crayfish, also known as crawfish, crawdads, freshwater lobsters, or mudbugs, are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters, to which they are related taxonomically. Crayfish are mostly found in brooks and streams where there is fresh water running and which have shelter against predators. Crayfish feed on living and dead animals and plants. [source]
