    I was under the impression that my little crab, Robby, was about to molt.
    He spent over 24 hrs being burried. While I was watching the other crabs play around tonight I saw Robby come back up and start walking around.
    So far he's completely pigged out on veggies, checked out numerous empty shells in the tank, and now hes been playing around the salt water dish.
    What is he doing???

    I guess he must be. He spent the entire day in the small hermie hut, which is HIS house, everyone else is too big for it. Hope he makes it through if thats whats going on, I get nervous with molting.

    I know what you mean. I have had more bad molts than good. So I, too, get very nervous when the time comes! Lots of luck and keep us posted!

    Well since the last time I posted, Robby hasn't moved from the hut. He's not burried, the his shell opening is. Maybe he's going to molt above ground. I wish he'd just get it over with.

    Um, only about 3 or 4 months. He hasn't molted since I've had him, just changed shells twice.
