Hey Pablo! Yes, we too have crawfish! This is Gator. He's a pet of mine and not available for brain sucking! Posted by Picasa

He certainly has more color than our midwestern variety. Clever name, but I hope he doesn't get a swelled head because of it.

So what's the deal with Blogger? Not a single site I visit will allow me to put my name and URL in as it used to? Is it just my connection? Or have other's faced the same thing?

I don't know what's up. I know I could not get to your site on Friday ( a fact which really aggravated me).

Just the tails for me, too, thanks.

That's a big one, FC.

But one of my giant water bugs ("Eastern toe-biters") would take care of it in a heartbeat.

This guy is carrying that crustacean blue gene. He's a beauty.

I have been bitten by the giant water bug. I thought for a moment I had been bit by a moccasin. The pain was so intense...I really dislike them. I;m being polite.

Yeah, they're something alright.

I had one in a (very "natural") aquarium and he ate carwdads exclusively. He took no interest at all in the different little fish in the tank - sticklebacks, minnows, what-have-you.

My tenure as the keeper of the toe-biter ended when he started buzzing around my bedroom at night.

No sir, not me. I'm not the guy to have one of those things loose in my room at night. Nuh-uh.

They make a satisfying crunch when they show up on my porch lights.

They also make a satisfying crunch when eaten al dente in places like Thailand.
