It gets me every single time even when I see the actual shrimp alive and well right next to it I still do a double take haha!It can be a bit creepy!
Just remember that it's not a dead shrimp.
Haha yeah I should leave it a passive aggressive note telling it to pick it's old clothes up off it's bedroom floor as I'm sick of being the only one who cleans around here!Wow, that is kind of amazing to see that it just leaves it's clothes behind...just like us humans.
I wish it was his first molt it's at least his 3rd and I still fall for it! I do love the little hatch it has to climb out of it...natures really something!I did the same thing when my crayfish molted. Even after reading how so many people freaked out when they saw the first empty shell. I did the same thing, and thought he was dead.
It really is amazing isn't it! Every last little detail is on the molt! I think they wait for their new shell to harden before they come back out. I guess people shed too just not in one go haha that would be really creepy imagine waking up next to a human molt!When I had my saltwater tank in the 80's, I had a Hawaiian purple striped lobster that molted at least 6 times and got a little bigger with each one. I'd see the empty shell and the lobster would hide for a day or 2 and then come back out. It is amazing how they do it.
Lol, creepy!It really is amazing isn't it! Every last little detail is on the molt! I think they wait for their new shell to harden before they come back out. I guess people shed too just not in one go haha that would be really creepy imagine waking up next to a human molt!
I kept the first one too I was just fascinated by the detail and how intact it was...my toddler decided to inspect it...its no longer intact lol I just put it in a flower pot in sure plants can utilise it hahaThe first time it happened was a few days after I got my shrimp. I definitely thought he was dead, especially cos they hide and the molts are so detailed. I like to take the molts out and keep one. The first one I got is in great shape, down to the antennae.
I don’t think bamboo shrimo would eat theirs, either.
