If tarantulas weren’t creepy enough they actually shed their skin!
It’s usually spiderlings and adult females who molt. This is in order for the tarantula to grow leaving behind its smaller hollow husk. They even shed the linings of some of their internal organs!
A few weeks before molting the tarantula will be sluggish and stop eating. The shedding period could be anywhere from 30mins to 3 days and they’ll commonly shed laying their back. After molting the skin is very fragile so let them recover from their ‘rebirthing’ for at least one week or until their new fangs turn from white to black.
