Spiders just got creepier!

If you are creeped out by spiders, you may want to brace yourself.

This video shows a tarantula going through its molting process, which allows it to grow by shedding its exosleleton. Typically the process takes several hours, but here it is condensed into just a couple of minutes. Skip ahead to about 50 seconds in to see the tarantula in finished form.
