Are you sure its a crab or just a molted shell? If you touch it, does it react?
Also, is this a crab only habitat? They require brackish water and places to climb out of the water.

I'd say it just molted unless you bought a single mutated crab. :) typically the crab will eat the shell it molted to gather calcium to rebuild its exoskeleton."Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
