Amphibian eggs, tadpoles, insect larvae, insects and plants are all common foods eaten by crayfish, according to Penn State University. If given the opportunity, these creatures will also eat small rodents or birds. The Missouri Department of Conservation reports that some crayfish will eat other crayfish, alive or dead.
