Brits warned to not swim naked with crayfish

The Red Swamp Crayfish, which are native to America, have rocketed in numbers in the past few months at two ponds in Hampstead Heath, north London (UK), now estimated to be more than 5,000 ‘very defensive’ of their territory, with powerful claws. Now the regular nude dippers are being warned to beware of the crayfish, because, you know, claws and nudity don’t mix that well. Read The Telegraph.
