Zoo Buddies: Red Swamp Crawfish
Every Tuesday on Good Morning ArkLaMiss, our Zoo Buddies from the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo are brought by our special guest Lisa Taylor.
Taylor brought in red swamp crawfish! She says they are omnivores found in freshwater, streams, rivers, ponds and ditches. Taylor says they love to burrow.
“These guys love to burrow meaning they dig down in the ground when the habitat is looking a little dry or if there looking for food. They also make themselves crawfish mounds that look like chimneys,” Taylor said.
The Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo will be having their Rendezvous at the Zoo Thursday, March 26.
The event will feature an afternoon at the zoo with boat and train rides for visitors to enjoy. To purchase tickets, call the zoological society or call the zoo at 318-329-2400.
