This guy shed or dead? warning corpse or shell pic heh

Looks pretty hollow to me, BUT he's been in the tank all night critters could have emptied him out. I'll look in a few days for a 1 armed emerald...

I never could find exits where my red-clawed and gold clawed crabs exited. If you find it, let me know. I have no idea how they get out of those things while the shell stays intact.

look at the back seam where the top and bottom come together, where the butt would be... very hard to see try and pry it apart...

I wonder if the pods cleaned him out..
Well wait and see if I can find him in the tank with a new shell..
