Pep shrimp molt or dead?

Short and sweet.....
This look like a molt or dead shrimp? Found this in the morning before work.

Could be dead because I have had the same 2 peppermints for over 2 yrs.

opinions?

You tell us.

You're the one that can see it.

Is there a shrimp inside it or not?

Not sure actually. Believe it or not, I have yet to see a molt. You would think I would in the last 8 yrs!

It looks clear to me....but I'm not sure if shrimp go clear like that when they die. Don't know why they would.

I should have grabbed it but I was running out the door to work.

I believe it is. You should see emerald crabs molt. It looks so complete that you have to turn it upside down and look inside to see nothing inside. Pretty awesome.
