Your letter to the bugman: Dear bugman:
I found this in my backyard. We live up against a wooded area called stumpy lake. I don’t know if it is a crayfish or a scorpion? I think i would have to rule out scorpion. It did not seem to be real fast or super aggressive. I took several pictures so that you could identify it.

This is a Crayfish, a semiaquatic crustacean that is often found in slow running streams and ponds. They can survive out of water and in times of drought, they will burrow underground.
