    My largest crabby, Solomon, has begun digging little half-holes the past few days. He'll bury himself to the lip of his shell, so all you can see is the shell, and sit there for an hour or so before moving. Now he's gone into the half-log and kicked dirt over the entrance, so I can't tell if he's actually down or just half-buried again.

    Could he be getting ready to molt?

    I don't think it's specifically indicative of being pre-moult.
