Question?

Post by maryanngarcia »

So I bought a new hermit crab 3days ago and it's been in it's shell this whole time... Is that normal...? When I finally seen it come out for like 5minutes last night it didn't look right it's like it's not walking like the other crabs I don't know if it's to small for the shell so it can't come out all the way or I'm so worried it's another being stuck in the shell case... Is there anything I can do to get it out of that shell... ? Maybe he's just tried so much to coming out but can't that he's just giving up...? I need help...

Is it in a painted shell? If not, how much of its body did you see? Did it peek out?
