Crayfish

Dear Deb,
Your image is lacking in critical clarity, but it also beautifully illustrates a Crayfish (AKA Crawfish, Clawfish or Crawdad) in a threat position.  Though not considered dangerous to humans, Crayfish will defend themselves with their claws and a large individual might deliver quite a pinch.  We love the images on Ecns.cn of a Fight between cats and a crayfish.

Thank you!  That’s exactly what it is.  Just don’t know why it was in a parking lot no where close to water!

That is odd, though Crayfish can survive for long periods of time out of water.
