Pumpkin buried for over 2 months; concerned

Pumpkin is a small-medium hermit crab. She has an opening of about 1".
She's been buried for about 2 and a half months. Should I be concerned? Thanks!

I don't think you should be worried. Hermit crabs can take lots of time to molt. As long as you don't smell a strong odor near the tan, Pumpkin should be fine.

By the way, I love Pumpkin's name!
