Yaaay!!!

My hermit crab isn't dead. I didn't realize what a molt looked like.
I posted the comment that my crab was dead and I had a couple of comments that he probably just molted.
I got home tonight and he is ALIVE!!!!!

Well, at least I know what a molt looks like now.

Likely a molt... it looks just like the animal backed out of it's own skin (exoskeleton?). The first time I saw a molt I thought it was a dead hermit... it had eyes, pincers, and legs...
