I have had some pretty unusual exotic pets in my day. I think the most unusual, and a little fellow I grew very attach to, was a crawdad. I really didn't go out to find a pet crawdad, it just kind of happened. Luckily, I had an aquarium set up at home. I had it set up to use it for something but I sure don't remember what it was. The opportunity of having an exotic pet crawdad turned out to have many blessings. My young children were presented with an opportunity to learn compassion, learn the value of life, and responsibility. Find out how this remarkable crawdad managed all this!
