Seriously, even if spiders give you the heebie-jeebies, you need to watch this. With a little bit of audio editing, a tarantula shedding its exoskeleton becomes cute—even if it's still a bit creepy.


I don't know what inspired Vimeo user Bipolar Spider to add wacky audio to their molting Chilean Rose while playing with the video speeds. I do know that I watched this video four times in a row and cheered every time the tarantula stretched its legs next to its freshly shed shell.
