The things hiding in your brain...

While at the cabin we were talking about a spider or something that a kid named a boy name and then found out it was a girl. 
Someone asked how you would be able to tell the difference.
I answered with "Sexual dimorphism"
I didn't even realize I had that phrase roaming around in my brain... The other gals looked at me and were like "Wow! Where'd that come from?" I guess I did retain a bit of my Zoology major knowledge.
So, for lucky13charm, kalfoley, Non-LJ J and anyone else who is curious, here is the wiki on sexual dimorphism:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_dimorphism

Sexual dimorphism is the systematic difference in form between individuals of different sex in the same species.
