Crayfish seen in France

Observed: 15th August 2013 By: lightnessandweight

My daughter found this today in the Tarn river in southern France. The Tarn river runs through deep limestone gorges and seems pretty clean....just cant quite decide what species this is - can anyone help?

I'm not sure -

But the likeliest candidate is the American Signal Crayfish. As in the UK, it has out-competed the native species.
