    On this episode of Breaking Trail, Coyote finds an extremely blue and quite possibly new species of Crayfish!

    While adventuring in the back hills of West Virginia with herpetologist Tim Brust the team set their sites on encountering this rare mountain gem by sifting through rocky outcrops where water seeps pour out of the mountainsides creating muddy water pockets.

    Unlike most crayfish species these sapphire blue beauties live underground and not in the mountain streams and rivers like many of their cousins. However finding them is much easier said than done, since they can burrow down more than 6 feet!

    So will the team be able to help researchers in their discovery of this new creature?

    Get ready to find out!

    HUGE THANKS to Tim Brust of ESI for all of his help in making this episode possible. And an extra special THANKS to Dr. Zac Loughman of West Liberty University for his help in describing this new species.

    I had one blue and one red crayfish in my aquarium. The blue one killed the red one. then I bought a white crayfish. The blue one killed it too! Then I bought another blue crayfish and my old crayfish killed it too. After that I put some guppy fish in It's tank and he ate all of them! He died 2 years later. He was my best friend and the strongest crayfish I've ever seen. Now he is resting in my fridge. You can buy one in most of the aquarium store in Bangladesh for TK500. I guess, you can buy it on your local aquarium store in other countries. Peace.
