Re: Molting complete?

The substrate is 3 times the height of my hermit crab and we sprayed water every day. So, it should be moist enough. Does hermit crab like living alone or in groups?

Molting, sleeping or dead?

My crab has been like this for few hours.

It is my first time seeing his eyes pointing downwards.

Is he molting, sleeping or dead?

He ate last night (probably 6-8hrs ago) and kept digging hole for a week. Is it possible he is just molting?
