This is a crayfish. They have named him George. (are you sure it's not a lobster? It's so big!!!)
Sarah wanted a close up. Bailey, not so much... Dave kept the gloves on. Apparently George can pinch pretty hard!
After his photo shoot, George went back into the pond where he can get even bigger...
The pond is a fascinating environment, crammed with chub, minnows, frogs and toads in various stages of no longer being tadpoles. And crayfish!
