Tons of loyal fans were pulling for the sweet crab during the molting process. Howie’s mom expressed some fears that she might not be able to properly molt due to her older age, and viewers were totally invested in seeing the crab through the process and to better days. “I’m over joyed that Howie is doing well. She looks beautiful in her Santa hat too,” one fan wrote. Another added, “I SCREECHED!! LOVE YOU HOWIE!!!!” One other fan wrote, “The present we all really wanted!!! 😂 (Or at least I did… 😳)”
Howie’s mom also shared the good news on her Instagram page with a carousel of photos of a much happier Howie than fans have seen in a while. “I can die happy 😭 Howie is back to normal! Check out the new video on TikTok. Merry Christmas everyone!” the caption reads.
Howie Just Wanted To Hold Her Sandwich Yesterday
Just yesterday, Howie’s mom shared a video on TikTok that shows the little crab holding a peanut butter sandwich after weeks of not eating. The video also shows Howie not really feeling wearing a hat just yet. “I left a PB sandwich in her tank and she found it and was holding it. Her appetite isn’t quite back yet but she’s still digesting her molt. I tried putting her hat on and that was a big nope,” the post was captioned.

When one follower asked when Howie is expected to eat her first normal meal since her molt, Howie’s mom replied, “She’s been nibbling on food but it takes a bit to digest. Tomorrow or the next day she should be ready for a regular meal.”
