Hermit Crab Troubles?
6 years ago
Hi Jim. It's Kim. Nice to see you today. My husband is a marine biologist of sorts, so he's actually answering this for you: he says yes, it is very normal for it to stay in the water for a while after molting, because the new skin is very sensitive and this keeps it from drying out too soon. If, however, it is a land/dry crab (one that you might've found on the beach in MS), then there may be trouble after a couple of weeks...Keep us posted. Good luck.
