[English] plural yabbies

The yabby is a freshwater crayfish found in swamps, streams, practically dried-up water-holes, and rivers. It prefers moving water but will put up with anything, being a tenacious beast which can even survive drought by burrowing into the ground. Yabby is a general term for all the freshwater crayfish, mainly Cherax destructor, in Australia except the redclaw and the marron. The meat is sweet and succulent.
