Is checking crayfish gender easy as you might guess?
Tugging on the legs results in quite a mess!
First know your species, molting phase and such
Lift the legs and "peeks" won't tell you very much
Gender identification your first step towards success
Knowing if you have a Red Swamp or Bayou Cray is best
Although it's not impossible to identify mating phase
If appendages missing you'll have no sex to praise
So "good luck" as you struggle to burn the midnight oil
Enlighten with your knowledge the hopes,dreams and toil
Just remember "never give up" if it's sex that you must know
Carefully spread the legs ....your experience will show!
