Determining a Crab's Gender

From the onset, what I know of is that a crab only has two genders, a female and a male. It was only recently that I knew that there's a bading (gay) crab. At first I thought my husband was just kidding me so I didn't mind him that much. When the vendor confirmed that he has bading crabs on stock, I was finally convinced. Bading crabs are usually the first ones that get sold out because these are more tasty than the rest.

To identify the crab's gender, look at the underside and spot the difference.

bading crab

female crab

male crab

True as they say, the bading crab is really something to look forward to.

Just a simple lesson I learned at the wet market and it was really enlightening. :)

Punta De Uian, Bgy. Pundaquit, Zambales

I simply love his photo as it speaks of a thousand words about summer as well as how I enjoyed our stay in the resort. Punta de Uian has been one of the location shoots of the local version of Marimar. Thirty minute boat ride from the resort, you will reach Capones Island where you will see a lighthouse.
