“When Tarantulas shed their bones. Sounds wild but they only have an Exoskeleton no internal bones like we do. When they shed it’s actually a very risky moment in their life’s, they are so vulnerable. If you look close you can see that even the fangs are soft and white until their skin hardens back up in the 2 to 8 hours . Kinda amazing to see the process in slow motion,” they wrote and posted the video.
