Pet Tarantula Sheds Exoskeleton in Awesome Timelapse

A man captured a hypnotizing timelapse of his pet tarantula molting at his home in Reno, Nevada, on August 19.

Footage by Jason Bauer shows his adult female Mexican flame knee tarantula shedding her old exoskeleton, leaving the viewer seeing double as she steps out of her old skin.

Bauer told Storyful that the process took approximately two and a half hours.

According to National Geographic, tarantulas will molt a number of times until they are finished growing. Credit: Jason Bauer via Storyful
