Tarantula Molting Is Like Alien From Science Fiction Movie!

Tarantula Molting Is Like Alien From Science Fiction Movie!

image/video source

We finally managed to video the first Xenesthis sp White while it was molting. It took a total of 10 hours to complete. Fortunately for the viewers the tarantula actually molted up-right allowing me to capture a very detailed carapace. Seems like this is the first video of this species so enjoy. - [filed under: timelapse]
