    So would this lobster be infertile, able to produce eggs, able to inseminate, or both of the latter two?

      The study referring to that 1-2% figure (Fausto-Sterling et al.) misrepresents the definition of intersex and is off by at least an order of magnitude. Real figures are closer to 1 in 8000.

        Thanks for the feedback. I’m going to delete my comment because I don’t have time to read around this and don’t want to spread false info
