      Spider Metamorphosis photos

      K time to Admit.. .. But.. I've Been holding out for a while on some of these photos... Just for this!!

      Some of these you may have seen in my breeding thread, and my T-photo thread Specially the first few.. ... But the Lot of these should be new to ya.

      If your keeping up with my breeding thread, you'll know that Some of these had a lot of trouble molting, and a few never made it out... But for the purpose of this thread.. showing the different stages of Metamorphosis is just... Amazing!


      Egg.


      Molting to Eggs with Legs:









      Eggs With Legs







      Molting into First instars







      First instars




      starting premolt.


      First instar Tarsus and Tarsal Claws (With faint internal hair growth)


      First instars in Premolt. (with Internal Hair Growth.)






      3 First instar slings at 3 different stages of premolt...



      Molting into 2nd instar.
      Most of them have actually molted hanging from the sides of the cork bark!











      Second instar toes sliding out of First instar exuvium.


      The one on the left Just began molting... carapace popped off, abdomen has split.. and blood is being pushed into the thorax and legs... The one on the right will begin to molt very soon. And... Check out the Toes of a Second Instar!! Bottom right of photo, touching the thread of webbing.



      This was the third (of Many) that molted in a horizontal hanging position.



      Second instars







      Piles of Secont instars:





      Eight Eyes... and Three Hundred Legs!
