Hermit crabs - Do they shed their skin?
I woke up this morning to find one of my red-legged hermits half torn to pieces next to his shell. I picked the shell out of the aquarium, and got rid of the body.
I have since put the shell back in the tank, to find the hermit still in his shell.
I initially thought it was another hermit taking his shell, but I've done a count up and all 3 hermits are present and correct.
So what was the red fleshy body I threw away this morning? Possibly from my cleaner shrimp? Although it didnt look like a cleaner, it was far smaller.
Any thoughts... Thanks
