I walked in yesterday morning to find 'someones' exo laying in the sand and 2 crabbys helping themselves to it! I could tell the exo didnt belong to either of those two so I went on the hunt for the molter. I found him, apparently the other crabs had chased him away from his own exo! Poor lil guy! Anyway, I took the exo and the molter and put him in ISO. I was very worried thinking he might not make it. This morning he seems to be doing ok. Hes resting now but not in the place where I left him so I know hes been walking around, some of the food in the dish has been eaten and hes changed shells. Im taking all that as a good sign. Its been a long time since I had a surface molter. I cant figure out why he didnt bury himself this time since he has all the other times... crabbys... go figure!
