Jerry's search for a new shell

Jerry has been with us for two years. We have been very surprised at how long this crab has lived. Well, one day we thought it had bit the dust. So I took it out of the cage and placed it on a paper towel for Lola to say her good byes. Several hours later we realized that it was still alive and the piece wrapped in the paper towel was it's exoskeleton. We were all amazed! so we put it back in the cage and allowed it to search for a new shell. The funny part is that it ended up moving into the old shell several days later:) We all had a lesson on crabs shedding.
