The Attack of the Mutant Crayfish
Man likes to believe he’s in control of nature (in Canada, persons believes they’re in control!) Then along comes a ratting quake or a blizzard or a hurricane and we’re humbled.
scientists in Europe have discovered a new species of crayfish
Now scientists in Europe have discovered a new species of crayfish. You can read about it here in the New York Times. A sudden mutation created the species two decades ago.
Now the creatures are spreading across the globe, aided by humble persons who thought it a novelty until the crayfish reproduced like rabbits.
It’s because the females can clone themselves, hundreds and hundreds of times. Before we dread the clawed takeover of the planet I offer a solution. Boiling water, seasonings and butter!
