Who's molted today

Another moult last night and this one did surprise me. Beck, my 6 year old Davus pentaloris, moulted July 2018 then again May 2020 so I was very surprised to find her on her back last night. Since her May moult she never came out of her hide, all I saw were a couple of her feet. Back in May she had blocked her doorway with the old exo so I left it intending to retrieve it next day but it had vanished. This evening I lifted her hide gently to investigate and there was Beck squished up with both moults.
