I am new to hermit crabs and last night my son was screaming that his hermit crab was out of his shell and just laying there. Well, I just assumed he was dead and we were all terribly sad. I put him outside in the woods. My son was very attached to him and wanted to keep his shell and put it up somewhere so I went to wash the shell out and he was in there!!!!! All white (in color) A HUGE shock to us. It was molt I put out in the woods, not his body as I had thought. I have now read that they are supposed to eat there molt but I can't find it... will he be ok? PLEASE let me know anything I can do.
