Simple Guide for shrimping: the saddle. A common misconception that people believe the area eggs are carried is called the saddle. Often times say the saddle is rounded meaning it’s a female but that is just the belly region. The saddle refers to a clear mark near the head that resembles a horse saddle in the shape of a U. It’s an indication that your shrimp is ready to carry eggs very soon. The same for all shrimp, neocaridina(easier to see) and caridina(harder to see)
