Anatomy of a Tarantula / Exoskeleton.

As the tarantulas 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 predictors. This process is called molting, young spiders and females molt as adults except for the adult males which rarely molt.
