Ok guys i have a very awkward question last night my sally light legs went MIA! i noticed that my bullseye mushroom (large) was closed and something was inside trying to get out. Is it possible that my sally light legs was eaten by the mushroom?

Bad News

Yes my initial asumption was true. There was never any molting. My bullseye mushroom attemted to digest my sally lightfoot and did not manage to do so. He spit him out and he is stuck inside a membrane it is amazing how this happened! I will post pictures once camera is charged....has this ever happened to anyone....remeber its a large bullseye mushroom.

Make sure it`s not the molt. They look like the real thing.

You`ll need to pull it out and break it open and see. Like I said the molt looks like the real thing. Many a person has started a thread saying their crab died only to find out it was a molt. It`s just very hard to believe that a mushroom could catch a crab.. I have hundreds of mushrooms and have never seen that before. But maybe this is a first.
