    hey howzit everyone

    I have a weired question. Can crabs shed their shell ?
    One week ago i bought some LR and 2 crabs.
    Yesterday i thought i saw that one of my crabs had died,
    because i found a a shell of a crab i removed it out.
    and today i found a crab a bit bigger than the one i thought
    had died (i still got its legs). Do yous think that its possible what
    i just said or do you think that crab is a hitch hiker but i never saw that
    crab before. And it is the same kind of crab of the one i thought had died

    what do yous think.:biggrin:
