There is mold ON my hermit crab!!

Post by Lucasnoyce »

Hello I have a crab that I assumed to be molting on the surface. It started a few days ago, half hanging out of his shell and not moving. I kept him in his safe place and let him be but this morning I woke up and he was covered in white fuzz that I can only assume is mold. Please help

I am sorry to hear about this, but crabs don't usually mold when they are alive, so my best guess is that your crab has died and is starting to grow mold.
