    At first I though my crab just changed shells from a small one into a shell that was too big for him but he hasnt moved around for three days now. All I see is once in a while are his legs moving. Could he be molting in there?

    I haven't had that happen before, but it's probably possible!

    That would be mighty uncomfortable, I would think! Keep us posted!
