This Cherax represents in all probability a still undescribed species. We received a small number of the attractive animal from Papua New Guinea. The crayfish are very pretty due to the rusty red spots on the back. The animal can be kept along with fish, but feeds often on plants.
For our customers: the crayfish have code 481482 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
