Caption: Time for the daily biology lesson! Insects and arachnids such as spiders don't grow steadily but pass through several stages, called instars, marked by the shedding of their skins (exoskeletons). Here, a white-marked tussock moth caterpillar has just shed its furry coat, which can be seen below it.
