Question by  sin (28)

Should I be concerned that my hermit crab seems to be missing his arms?

My hermit crab has no arms.

Hermit crabs go through a natural process called molting. During this process, the legs are replaced with gel-like nubs that are the new legs in a clear chitin sheath.

How much concern does the hermit crab show? Does he seem distraught or confused by the lack of limbs? Really, my friend, if the crab isn't concerned about it, just relax and enjoy a good book.
