Lost claw during molt
I have a female orange clarkii that molted shortly before I came home. She is sitting next to the old shell enjoying the usual after molt shell snack, but her right claw (the new one) in laying on the ground less than a half inch from the joint that is used to be attached to. So close that it looks like it literally just fell off. Normal? is there any need for concern? Had 4 varieties of crays for a year now and this is new to me! Any advice would be much appreciated!

Definitely normal. After her next molt she will most likely come out with atleast a mini pincer on that side, and will eventually be back to normal.
