Question:
We are interested in finding out if crayfish are territorial. We are fifth grade students conducting an independent research project. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.



Replies:
Crayfish are very territorial. If you keep several in the same tank they will eventually kill one another. I hope this info helps you!
