How Do Crayfish Move?


Crayfish have a few modes of movement and it varies on their age. Younger crayfish can swim and walk, whereas adult crayfish usually walk more as their bodies are more cumbersome. A crayfish's body has segments on it and when they swim their movement starts at the rear of their bodies to propel them forward.
