Crayfish

Dear Drew,
This is a Crayfish, a freshwater crustacean.  You did not clarify if your pool is below ground or above ground, or if it is a swimming pool or a garden pool.  We understand how this Crayfish might have fallen into a below ground pool, but if you have an above ground pool, we suspect a person or creature (a predator like a raccoon perhaps) is responsible for it being where you found it.
