In the restaurant in which I work patrons ask for female lobsters or male on occasion. The manner which I have been telling them apart is to flip the lobster over and look for the 2 les pointed toward the body are finer on the female, also the heavy claw is on the left, also the tail shell is slightly wider where it meets the body(these are all female). But now it's been just crack them open and look, we have 2 lobster fests each week and serve between 200-250 lobsters, so they don't go to waste. How can I distinguish the differences between them, are the ways that I am using incorrect? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
