  • you can spray it with water to see if it comes out of its shell. also, they go into "hiding" when they're in the process of shedding their exoskeleton.

  • mine only comes out at night. Take the shell and put it in a different spot and see if he moves.

  • Whenever mine died, they always crawled out of their shells first. There were plenty of bigger shells available, so I know they weren't just "homeless."
