Louisiana crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) has become a real domesticated
pet. Quite a lot of colour sports have been developed by breeders.
These sports do not exist in the wild. One of these sports is plain
white. In case the female bears eggs it looks like Snow White playing
the species P. clarkii has been proven to be one of the most aggressive
invasive species. Released animals – by accident or intentionally –
have become a plague in many countries and are the cause for the
extinction of many native species. So please keep this in mind. Never
abandon an aquarium animal in nature, no matter what species! Thank you.
For our customers: the crayfish has code 486982 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
