What are those things made of? And if you say Crawdad secretions I'm going to hurl.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Crawdads aren't for eatin', they're strictly catch and release. Bleck!!!

blueviolet said...

They're right in the grass like that? That is actually really cool. At least to me.

Gaston Studio said...

Now that's a "delicacy" I've never tried, but I love escargot; does that count?

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I didn't realize they live right in the ground like that, I always thought they were like shrimp and lived in water...pretty cool 'mud huts' for sure!

blognut said...

Yeah, right! There is NO way I'd put that shit in my mouth! No way!

darsden said...

Hello everybody and yes people eat those bugs.. NOT me though. I hear they are like shrimp! Some people even suck the heads..NO Chit!

Mango Girl said...

I love mudbugs! Miss the southern coast and all the crawfish boils...my mouth is watering!

darsden said...

Mango Girl- YOU tell them...tell them how much fun those crawfish boils are!! I don't even eat the mud bugs...but sure is fun going and watching everybody else that does :-) good times!

Brian Miller said...

there is a great place in lafayette that stuffs them in aligator tail...its really good!

otin said...

I have those mud looking things all around my ditches! I will eat crawdads for sure!

Reddirt Woman said...

Bite the tails and suck the heads... Thanks but no thanks. I'm with you on not eating the crawfish.

I'm with Twisted... catch and release.

blognut said...

They suck the heads? They boil the crawdaddy and then suck it's head off.

Am I the only one that thinks that is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard of?

blognut said...

Where's Braja? I am starting to think she's right about that whole vegetarian thing.

Michel said...

WHAT!? WTF was that? those things live in that mud thing that looks like the pottery bowl I tried to make that one year i thought i could be artsy??

GROSS. Seriously dude. Back away from the shellfish. I'm not kidding here.

Lilly said...

I have never ever seen one let alone eaten one. I think I am missing out. NOT..

Pastor Sharon said...

I'm wondering. Do Lobsters who look like giant crawfish or crawdaddy's live in mud huts under the sea?

darsden said...

Otin-I bet you do like them!

Reddirt Woman-Yea dat wha I'm talkin about...she know

Blognut yep pretty gross in my book too. My 5 year old nephew sucks the heads..so does emoree. They been around cajun pop too long!

Michel-pottery pot..bawhahaha that is hilarious! I do ...step way back... just watch.

Lilly-they say it's like shrimp, but I don't eat that either!

Pastor Sharon-Yes, they do look similar..google them there are some uncooked ones to look at, they are the smaller ones. And not mud huts under the sea But I hear you can get a Fancy sponge down under there!

Pearl said...

Oh, my...

We have crayfish (same thing, right?) up here but they don't get much bigger than a finger. Karen and I used to hunt for them in cricks. But I have NEVER seen the little mud huts!

Ooooh. Something new to think about!!

darsden said...

Pearl-yes the same thing I would guess. Not all of them build the fancy mud huts. Some just live in the creeks and ditches and swamps of louisiana..then dat do are bayou bugs ;-)

But I am impressed by house the dig and move all that dirt...in the mouth and out the ... well they use their tails a lot too!
