Even babies like deep sub. This is 16cm deep and someone has gone right to the bottom. Image

Babies in bigger shells make much more noticeable alterations to the surface of the sub. They are all down for the last few days. The first one in a big shell went down the day after it changed. The second did much the same but maybe had 2 days before going down. Sort of a bit sad to see how big they get in this moult. Glad I took a before photo so I can compare.

Number One has absolutely done a moult. Look how well it’s filling that huge shell now. Also note hairy legs and sharp black toes.

Pigging our on the food side of things too. Filling hollow legs like a teenager or packing in the food like a toddler for a growth spurt. Not quite sure.
