Anatomy of a Tarantula / Exoskeleton.

As the tarantula's exoskeleton cannot grow, it has to develop a new exoskeleton inside the old skin. It is at this stage they can regenerate lost limbs and replace any lost urticating hairs which they have flicked out at predators. This process is called moulting, young spiders and females moult as adults except for adult males which rarely moult.
