Rescued from a Wine-bottle…

When Clane Tidy Towns were cleaning up a local stream they found something unexpected inside a wine bottle…when they cracked open the wine bottle see what they found for yourself below!

This is a White-Clawed Freshwater Crayfish, a protected species in Ireland.

It appears to have crawled into the bottle when it was smaller, moulted into a larger size, and got trapped.

Please don’t litter.
