Crawdogs are 2' tall, 3'-4' long crustaceans with red carapaces, beaked jaws, and multiple elongated antennae.  They travel in small packs, and communicate with chirp-like vocalizations.  Hardy, adaptable, and suited to terrestrial and aquatic environs, crawdogs are found in all but the hottest and coldest climes.  They feed on almost anything organic, but fancy rotting vegetation, rodents, and fish.

A crawdog's pincers have atrophied significantly from those of its Ancient ancestors, and are capable of only clumsy grasping and ineffective pinching.

Crawdogs are affectionate, loyal, and obedient, and many families in the Mutant Future keep them as beloved pets.  Shepherds also use them to tend flocks.
