Weird looking yard bug found today-Shrimp?

My wife found this bug on our yard this morning. We live in Tampa, FL and I’ve never seen one of these on my lawn. Looks a lot like something between a freshwater shrimp and a crawfish.
This is indeed a Crayfish or Crawfish, but alas, some trauma has caused it to lose its claws. Fear not, the claws can grow back, but the poor crustacean is helpless until the regeneration.
