    • 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.
    • Until its new shell hardens, a crab that has molted is known as a " soft-shell crab " and may be more vulnerable to predation.
