I was doing my teaching thing the other day at the Chandler Environmental Center and the kids really got excited about the molting process. I did my best to explain how we shed our skin and showed them the skin of a snake, so this video really shows how spiders really shed their skin. For those of us that have tarantula’s – it really is cool how they perform this task. So the next time you see a web, that spider that you think is just hanging out may not be a spider at all – just the old skin. Cockroaches, spiders and scorpions all molt their skin.
