Pretty amazing video of a captive Spider Crab shedding its exoskeleton. It takes a while in the video for the crustacean to actually do it, and for the first minute plus it just kinda wiggles (as much as a spider crab can wiggle) and moves about prepping itself, but near the end, the entire process happens rather quickly. Pretty cool. I better to the crab the end result felt AMAZING. I imagine it's like wearing an outfit 2 sizes to small for days and finally shedding it all.
