    This was taken two weeks ago. I found her in the far left corner under the water pools.

    I had covered her since she seemed frightened and freshly molted. She was out of her shell too.

    I checked on her progress today and found her window was gone. I hear crunching and scraping sounds under the sand. I hope she comes up! I will update with pics.

    Mine do that too. I usually cover the glass in that spot to give them some privacy. But it doesnt keep me from peeking.

    Mine do it also. I also peek in to check on them. The only problem is when they scratch on the glass and it sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard; it makes my teeth itch!!!!! :biglaugh:

    As promised, she's the crabbie on the right near the dish. I just bought a moonlight led and found a perfect photo op.
