Managed to catch one of the P.rufilata 1st instars molting into 2nd instar so I shot a quick time lapse vid and snapped some pics. Cute little buggers, with some over 1"!

With the old exo being so transparent, you can actually see the progress of each leg as it's pulled out. Awesome!

Thanks Rob, always a pleasure to see your time lapse vids. Im going to have to get me one at least. They are usually kinda spendy.
