About Red Swamp Crayfish

Red swamp crayfish are dark red in color with raised bright red spots covering the body and claws and a black wedge-shaped stripe on the top of the abdomen. They may vary in length between 2 to 5 inches. Occasionally, a genetic mutation may turn the body and/or claws blue.
