What part of crawfish do you not eat?

Why do you put oranges in crawfish boil?
I like to put the oranges under the basket to give it some space from the bottom of the pot. The butter helps the seasonings stick to the crawfish and tastes pretty darn good too.
How long after a crawfish dies Can you eat it?
If you caught the crawfish yourself and they were all alive, and you eat them within an hour or so of catching them, then you will probably be ok with eating the ones that have died. The key to eating crawfish is to cook them as soon as you can after you have caught them.
