5. Boy And Girl Lobsters Look Different
Of course they do! If you look under the tail of a lobster you'll find feathery looking appendages called "swimmerets" that help lobsters swim. If the first pair of swimmerets (those closest to the head) are soft, you have a female lobster. If they are hard and bony, you have a male in your hands. You'll also find a rectangular looking shield on a female.
