Hello, A little while back I posted a question about upside down surface molting. Well unfortunately my little Spiral didn't make it. He tried for about 2 months and he passed over the past weekend. I was wondering if its common for hermit crabs to get stuck in their shell. I ask this because... now this might sound mean, but when a hermit crab dies I pull them out to recycle their shell. I am not sure if many people do this. Well when I had others that died, they usually jus slip right out of the shell or I would have to tug it just a bit, but when I tried to do this on Spirals shell, it was difficult. He was definately dead and smelled horrible. I stopped trying because it give me a bad feeling in my tummy tugging on him like that. Do you think he got stuck inside and died?
