He probably just molted. They do that probably ever 4-6 months. At least mine do. My crabs are about 2-3 years old and are getting pretty big. When I was in key west I was snorkeling and saw a huge one claws were double the size of my thumb easily. About the sized a soccer ball with the conch shell on it.

That's funny. I could understand if you painted his shell or something but really?
