I havent had hermit crabs for very long and I only have 1 now, I had 2 but one got sick or something. He wouldnt come out his shell for anything. I'd drop him in water and he wouldnt come out but he wasnt dead because he'd still be holding onto his shell and eventually he'd be holding on a little less and a little less and he wouldnt eat and he wouldnt drink. At first I thought that he needed a bigger shell but how can that be when I'd only had him for 3 weeks or so? I saw him change into the shell right before I got him. I was pretty discouraged but I thought "at least I still have cuddles" (my other crab) and yesterday I look at my little crabby pal and I notice that his legs had fallen off and I started freaking ever since then. I've heard something about molting but I didnt think that legs falling off of his body was part of it or what. So is my crab just molting and I'm an idiot for freaking out, or is my Cuddles dying from some kind of terrible disease like hermit leprasy or something? Help me PLEASE!!
