  8. 9. Did you know? <ul><li>When a crab grows too big for its shell, it sheds its shell by absorbing water and cracking it, a process called molting . Juvenile crabs molt more often than adult crabs because they are growing more rapidly; at larger sizes, king crab may skip molt as growth slows. A crab will molt at least 15 to 20 times in its lifetime. </li></ul><ul><li>Until its new shell hardens, a crab that has molted is known as a &quot; soft-shell crab &quot; and may be more vulnerable to predation.  </li></ul>
