Big Girl Molted (Added A Pic)

Post by SoulLonely » Tue May 29, 2012 9:21 am

So my largest crab molted and cam back up while I was gone this weekend. :) She also finally switched shells!

Here's a before pic:

She had a leg tip that needed to be regrown and one of her eyes looked funny.

Here's post molt pics (although, I just walked by the tank and she is trying on a pica shell now! :D
One of her eyestalks is shorter, but it doesn't look white/foggy on the eyeball anymore.

Ran over to snap a few of the Pica shell!

It surprised me because I think she as only down for a little over a month and I believe she is a large. But I'm happy she is up because she as an adoptee and you never know!



Edit:

One more shell change :)

She's beautiful. Did she stick with the tapestry turbo in the end?

For right now, yes. She came up last weekend and on Tues tried on the pica and snail shell, but stuck with the snail shell. Then, Thursday night she switched into the turbo. So it's been day four in the turbo :) So, I guess we will see if he stays! Although, the first two she tried both looked a big small on her stuff, but the turbo looks like much better fit :)




Thanks for all the comments everyone! I was so happy to see her molt successfully!
