    My crab, Daisy, has been burying herself for the fun of it, she hasn't molted. She's been down for about 2 weeks, and I've noticed that she's made me a window to where she is.
    She looks pale, some of her is white even. What is that??? Is she ok???

    Maybe she is in fact molting now. When the exoskeleton is about to come off, it turns pale in color sometimes and their eyes can get a cloudy appearance. Just don't dig her up and keep an eye on her. I know other people on the website have sadi that their crabs have buried themselves a month or more before beginning their molt. I had one recently that buried itself for what semed like forever...then came up and did a surface molt!
