My crab is producing white stuff

Post by Crabisgood » Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:01 pm

I have a small little crab which I found from the sea last week.
For the past few days it has been acting weirdly by shaking the stomach? Or bottom area once in a while. Then sometimes I noticed some white thingy which looks like thin skin in the water.
On the other hand do you think that crab will reproduce regardless of their size? My crab body is about 4cm wide so it should be a baby crab right.

Can you share a photo of the crab? Most crabs found at the ocean are marine hermit crabs, not land hermit crabs. They come up above the water line to eat, but cannot survive on land longterm. He could be in trouble.
