She was getting way too big for her old shell. So happy she found a new one she likes.

That's awesome! Sometimes crabbies don't understand that their pajamas are too small for them and are too stubborn to change. My crab Beau didn't change shells for 7 years, and when he did I was super excited. Image

7 years? Do a lot of crabs do that? (I'm kinda hoping mine will keep his for a while since it's my favorite and the blue in it really makes the orange in his exo pop)

I don't think the majority of them do that. I have heard that E's can be very stubborn though and refuse to change even when their shells are much too small. My Beau is a PP. It wasn't until I bought shells from Naples that he decided to finally change into one of them. Image
