These Gifs Of Animals Shedding Their Skin Are Horrifying, But Oddly Satisfying

If you thought insects weren’t gross enough with their multiple legs and horrifying little monster faces, they also have a propensity to shed their exoskeletons in the most disgusting ways. In fact, just about every creepy, crawly animal on the planet does this bizarre routine.

Below are a few creepy gifs of animals molting. This process might be even creepier than the creatures themselves. Can you stomach it?

These are creepy, sure, but wouldn’t it be kind of cool if we did this? Do you think anyone would tell if I shed my exoskeleton in a meeting and left for an hour?
