Time Lapse Of Tarantula Shedding Her Skin In Only One Minute
This is so fascinating! This is a short time lapse featuring a Brachypelma Smithi tarantula, named Pebbles, molting (shedding her skin). Pebbles is 11 years old and goes through this process at least once during a 1.5 year timeline. It was recorded over a 7-hour period, but with the time lapse, we can watch it all unfold in just one minute, incredible! This video makes the process look a lot shorter than it actually is. It is always so cool to see how nature works, especially when it's a tarantula shedding her skin! You don't see this very often!
Brachypelma Smithi tarantulas are usually found around the central Pacific coast of Mexico and are also known as Mexican Red-Knee Tarantulas. They are usually found in dry areas with barely any vegetation, usually in deserts, or tropical forests. They live in burrows in rocky areas as the base of thorny vegetation like cacti. They are very large dark spiders and be quite intimidating if you aren't a spider lover. They usually won't cause any harm unless they are being threatened. In that case, they will show their fangs.
