Yabbies a la Huckleberry Finn!




here's a pic of the coffee I drank today--NOT! .
its cherax destructor!!-
Australian fresh water crayfish- or 'Yabby'.

We spied them creeping along the river bed and so, wanting to impress my friends, I rolled up my jeans a la Huckleberry Finn, and deftly grabbed them just behind the claws. Still, these beasties have spines all over and it was a painful grab!
We bagged four- dutifully dispatched by Jesse and effortlessly pan-fried by Micah.
Magnifique!
(thanks Jesse for the pics)
