Do Sally Lightfoot Crabs Molt

I am not sure if they do but I found what I thought was my SLC upside down on a rock last night. I removed it and this morning I saw the crab cruising around on the rocks.

Mine molts every week or so - She has quadrupled in size in the 4 months I've had her.

Thanks, this is the 2nd time mine has done this. THe first time I thought it was a hitchhiker that just died but now I know. Mine seems to be growing too but I have only noticed 2 molts in 3 months. I have a 225 with about 350lbs of rock so maybe I just don't see all of the molts.
