Hermit Crabs Don't Molt... Do They?
Today I turned on the light to our tank and found what looked like our hermit crabs dead body (with out the shell). So naturally I take a look at the shell, and to my suprize He is in the shell.
I pulled out the dead body and it was definitly the hermit crab. So that brings on the question... Do Hermit crabs molt?
We only have this one hermit crab. When we first got him he would walk around a little and pick threw the rocks, but for the last about week, he has found a spot under a rock and doesn't move. I pulled him out from under the rock a few days ago to make sure he was still alive, and even though I didn't see him come out of his shell, sure enough he was back under the rock the next day.
I have not seen him fully out of the shell in over a week, I just see his claws out of the bottom of the shell..
