Default Red Cherry Shrimp .. help?

I got 6 red cherry shrimp yesterday, and form what i''ve read, the 'saddled' shrimp, are female.

Just wanted someone to confirm that the 'saddle' is what i think it is..

the yellow/greenish thing on the shrimp in the red circle is the saddle. Yes?

It looks that way to me. Here is a thread on another forum that discusses this, with photos.

Both shrimp are female! I've had success keeping them with my newts, they're much too fast to be caught, and they add a nice flash of color to the tanks as well as help to keep them clean. Hope mine breed soon :)
