Can these girls survive out of water?

Had a tank, completely empty for the past month if not longer. Just put water in it again two days ago. Turned on the light today and there staring back at me was a marble crayfish.
First of all, I thought I had sold all of them a long time ago like a month before I moved, secondly, even when I had them, I never kept them in this tank. Perhaps she was living in one of the sponge filters I put in there? But that has been out of water for over a month as well! I dont know what to think. maybe she's magic?

So you are saying that this animal (product of a virgin birth) disappeared from the earth ( to the best of our knowledge ) for a period or time (days?) and then miraculously reappeared. hmmm religions have been founded on lesser miracles.

Crayfish have a "Fuzzy gill" setup and as long as there is moisture on the gills they can extract oxygen from the air.

Granted, it doesn't explain for months, but it could explain a week, but no food?! it's a miracle!
