I have two land hermit crabs that I bought from the beach, and have had them for over a year now. I have done my best to take really good care of them and things were going great... Until the other day one of them molted. Then I noticed the unmolted crab coming over and starting at the one that just molted, so I separated them for a couple days. The newly molted crab ate a good bit of his molt, started walking around, and seemed good enough to defend himself, as they have never fought before, no missing limbs or anything of that nature... So I put them back together a day or so ago. Well tonight I see that the one has ripped off the small pincher and a leg of the molted crab. My question is what to do now? This injured crab has his large claw and two legs on one side, and only one leg on the other. Will he starve since he does not have a small claw to eat with? I am not worried about the mean crab, I took care of the thumb on his large claw rendering it useless. I post this not to upset anyone, but I am afraid that if I didn't even out the playing field that they would have to be separated forever, and if I did put them back together months from now, I would find a dead crab.
