On this episode of Breaking Trail, Coyote finds an extremely blue and quite possibly new species of Crayfish!

While adventuring in the back hills of West Virginia with herpetologist Tim Brust the team set their sites on encountering this rare mountain gem by sifting through rocky outcrops where water seeps pour out of the mountainsides creating muddy water pockets.

Unlike most crayfish species these sapphire blue beauties live underground and not in the mountain streams and rivers like many of their cousins. However finding them is much easier said than done, since they can burrow down more than 6 feet!

So will the team be able to help researchers in their discovery of this new creature?

Get ready to find out!


HUGE THANKS to Tim Brust of ESI for all of his help in making this episode possible. And an extra special THANKS to Dr. Zac Loughman of West Liberty University for his help in describing this new species.

5 Mysterious Creatures Caught on Camera

Every once in a while we hear about some weird creature that was seen or caught somewhere in the world: a fisherman almost caught by chance a monster, or someone saw a giant human footprint in his garden.
