    waited for it to begin molting I then periodically pulled the tank out of the water and photographed the crab Click on each image to see it larger Crab has just started to molt Crab has successfully molted The new shell is about 33 larger Note that the old gills are left behind Don t worry the crab has a complete set of new gills Crab is very weak after molting How does the crab gets its claws out Most people don t have a problem understanding how the crab gets its main body out of the old shell But they have a hard time understanding how the crab gets its legs and claws out As for the walking legs and swimming fins the diameter of the shell is about the same throughout The crab simply pulls its legs out of the old shell in a long and arduous process The claws however present a different problem and a unique solution Because the claws have a narrow base where they attach to the body it would be impossible for the crab to pull them out To overcome this problem the crab has several thin grooves or fracture planes strategically placed
