 Hermie crawled into shell that was too big

My hermie crawled into a shell that was too big and he is so far in there that I can’t see him unless I hold it up to the light (and see his silhouette). Will he be OK? does he need to changes shells?

He’s gonna need to change shells. Hermies should be able to plug the opening of their shell with their big claw. If they can’t do this, then it will stress them.

he will be fine. just make sure he has shells that are a good size for him in there. If he wants to change shells he will.

- hope this helps!
