There's a good chance the middens wil be at the den, but it depends on the octopus- some eat on the run, leaving the shell where they caught and ate the hermit.

... and some do both! If my hummelinckis decided to dine out, they have left their mess where it falls. If they decided to secret their food in their dens, they have push the empties out and left them at the door for the garbage person.
