    I noticed a few days ago that on my hermit crab’s claw it looked like skin was peeling off, it was white. Now the tips of her legs and claws are turning white! PLEASE HELP ASAP!

    What are you offering for a calcium source?
    Your hermitcrab is literally feeding off of itself because it needs calcium badly.
    When the exo starts getting ashy white in color that typically means a molt is pending and the crab is drawing all of the nutrients missing from it’s diet from it’s own exo in order to prepare.
    You really need to visit Landhermitcrabs.com I’m an admin there we have all of the crabbing info you need.
