CrAy FiSh

-Crayfish, crawfish, or crawdads resembling small lobsters. They breathe through feather-like gills and are found in bodies of water that do not freeze to the bottom; they are also mostly found in brooks and streams where there is fresh water running, and which have shelter against predators. Most crayfish cannot tolerate polluted water, although some species such as the invasive Procambarus clarkii are more hardy. Crayfish feed on living and dead animals and plants. crayfish generally refers to a saltwater spiny lobster.
The body of a decapod crustacean, such as a crab, lobster, or prawn, is made up of twenty body segments grouped into two main body parts, the cephalothorax and the abdomen.
Crayfish are commonly sold and used as bait, either live or with only the tail meat, and are good at attracting channel catfish, largemouth bass, pike and muskellunge.


-Crayfish are eaten all over the world. Like other edible crustaceans, only a small portion of the body of a crayfish is edible. In most prepared dishes, such as soups, bisques, only the tail portion is served. At crawfish boils or other meals where the entire body of the crayfish is presented, other portions, such as the claw meat, may be eaten.
Crayfish is a popular dish in Sweden and Finland, and is by tradition primarily consumed during the fishing season in August. The boil is typically flavored with salt, sugar, ale, and large quantities of the flowers of the dill plant. While most Americans eat them warm, the Swedish and Finnish normally eat them cold.


-Crayfish are kept as pets in freshwater aquariums. They prefer foods like shrimp pellets or various vegetables, but will also eat tropical fish food, regular fish food, algae wafers, and even small fish that can be captured by their claws. Their disposition towards eating almost anything will also cause them to explore the edibility of aquarium plants in a fish tank.
When keeping a crayfish as a pet, it is suggested they are provided with a hiding space. At night, some fish become less energetic and settle to the bottom. The crayfish might see this as a chance for an easy meal, or a threat, and injure or kill the fish with its claws. Crayfish are effective scavengers and will consume fish carcasses. They sometimes will consume their old exoskeleton after it has moulted.

-Frog is a kind of amphibious animal means "no tail". Formerly called the Latin Salientia saltare, "jump". Adult frog is characterized by long hind legs, shortbody, webbed fingers, eyes protrude a bit and the absence of a tail. Most frogslive eyes protrude a bit, but also easy to move on land by jumping or climbing.Frogs usually lay their eggs in puddles, ponds or lakes, and larvanya, the tadpoles, gill and grow in water.

Adult frog is a carnivore that like to eat animals Arthropod animals (especially insects), annelid and gastropods. Best known by the sound of frogs can beheard roar regardless of day or night, especially during mating season.
Frogs can be found from the tropics to subartik, but most species of frog found in tropical rainforests.
Frogs are among the most diverse vertebrate, comprising more than 5,000known species. However, populations of certain frog species dwindling.
Frogs and toads are often distinguished based on the face due to adaptation focused on the dry environment in animals called toads, however, this distinction has no basis taksonominya. The only family named general "toad" is Bufonidae exclusively, but many species from other families are also called"toads," and the species under the genus Atelopus frog called the "frog clown"(Harlequin frogs).

Types of Frogs :

1. Frog also known as yaws or refers to several species of toads amphibians.common characteristics used to distinguish frogs from the frog yaws usual is not the same characteristics used for scientific classification. Body shape is not a safe guide for assessing group anura. This is shown by a number of "true frogs"of the genus Rana and burrowing habits-like the frog yaws.

Frog Yaws.

-Almost all frogs have two pieces of yaws bumps on both sides at the back of the head called the parotid glands. These glands contain toxins, which flows out if the frog yaws pressure. Several types of frogs, yaws, toads Bufo marinus as is more toxic than others. Some "psychoactive toads" such as toads Bufo alvarishas been used as recreational drugs through the skin secretions or boil menyalaitoads to eat.
Frog yaws is a kind of amphibious animals are cold-blooded and lay eggs. Eggswill hatch as tadpoles yaws, before turning to adult frog yaws. Frog skin ulcer anddrier than the usual bumpy frog-hump. Yaws frogs eat small insects, and worms.
