Muddies



Mudcrabs, cooked and chilled await their final destination. Before cooking the "muddies" are a dull brown-green mud colour, but brighten up considerably after being boiled! To give some scale to the picture, the claws are about seven and a half centimetres (three inches) thick.

Really, they look like jaws with teeth!
We don't see anything like muddies here in Jerusalem, since shellfish are not kosher. Oh well . . .
