    i'm not sure but, i think i've read in a bok that if hermit crabs are gonna molt or soemthing, they always show sighs of intense burrowing everywhere. they keep burrowing and i think they're gonna molt. i don't want to "dig" them up in the middle of soemthing important. hwta do i do????

    Just let them bury and molt. Is there some reason why you are so stressed about it?

    I never get worried when they bury down I always get worried when they stay down for a long time, now that mine are bigger it takes longer, last time was over 2 months! Before it was a month.
