Lobster Facts: About the female lobster.
As we all know, it’s “ladies first”-- therefore the first paragraph will be dedicated to the female lobster. The rumor is that the female lobster meat is sweeter than the male's meat, However this not a proven fact.
In any case, there are some differences between the two. You can distinguish the female lobster from the male by her flatter, broader tail. There is also difference in the swimmerets—the forked appendages on the bottom of the tail. The first pair of the male’s swimmerets is hard, while those of the female are softer.
Who makes the ‘first move’; more female lobster facts
One very interesting lobster fact is who makes the ‘first move’. The female lobster, also called a hen, can't mate while her exterior shell is on her. She must shed it before mating. After doing so, she is the one to take the initiative. The lobster female is the one to go to the male den in order to start the mating process.
Many men wish human females would adopt this behavior.

Lobster Facts: Give a Hand
When a lobster stands in front of danger he is willing to sacrifice part of his body. The lobster, when confronting a predator, may be willing to give up a claw or a leg if it means escape. It’s not a big loss for him, since he can grow it back later. Another part of the body which lobster can lose and regenerate is the antennae. It's amazing, but there is no pain involved for the lobster.
If this procedure could happen on one's plate, it might be a problem for some well-known restaurants.
Lobster Facts: Heavy weight champion.
There are two main types of lobster: the spiny lobster and the American lobster. The American lobster – more commonly known as the Maine lobster -- is the larger of the two. The average weight of a lobster that you would find in a restaurant ranges from 1 to 3 pounds, but if left in the wild they can grow much larger than that. The largest lobster ever caught was weighed in at more than 40 pounds. That is one heavy weight champion!
These were some lobster facts that I find to be most interesting. There many fascinating facts about these wonderful creatures to explore.
