The Chesapeake Bay, not far from where I live, is famous for crabs, and locally, we celebrate summer with many crab festivals.
As I was reading about an upcoming Blue Crab festival this morning, I remembered a fun tidbit about these colorful crustaceans and wanted to share it with you.
Did you know that there is an easy way to tell the difference between a male and female blue crab?
Male blue crabs have claws with blue tips and female blue crab tips have “painted fingernails” that are red.
