I understand that they shedd their old shell because it’s too small and they are growing, but how can a larger shell fit in the already too small one?

I imagine they work pretty much the same as crabs; that is, the new shell is actually very soft and expands to fit the crab properly and takes a couple of days to harden into a shell.
