That's My Boy

Gunnar and I are learning about crustaceans this week.  Today, his zoology book showed us pictures of two crabs, very like these.



It explained that female crabs (which lay eggs) have a wider abdomen, thus, the crab on the top is the female.

Gunnar seemed disappointed.  He had thought the crab on the bottom was the female.

Why?

It's cleaner.

Tell Gunnar he hasn't met my daughters ;o). They'd be working right in Dinopolis with him.

Blessings!

He needs to come visit Marulaon - it's easy to tell the difference in coconut crabs. The females have "brushes" on their legs to help scoop up important things to fertilize their eggs :-)
