Here ya go guys. 6 Molting videos for your viewing pleasure. They're 1 minute long each with a file size of approx 6mb so they may take a bit to download. You need the Divx 5.02 codec to view them. You can get the codec at www.divx.com.

Right click on the link and do a save as...or you could just click on it normally and wait for it to download without having it saved if you like it....

Unfortunately, I've never gotten a chance to accurately measure it. I would say in the 8 to 10 inch range, but I could be off...

Scott, those videos were great. The last one really showed how flexible the skin was right after molt. I always wondered how 'pedes molted, and now I know.

Whoa Scott! I'm speechless! You're so lucky! Video too, man!

It was really cool where you could see how when it was chewing, the exo was still real soft and wrinkly. Super cool bro! Thanks for sharing. :)

Anyone ever watch old Godzilla movies, namely the ones with Mothra in them? You might have thought Mothra's larva form came off kind of cheesy with the crinkly skin, but voila! These vids show they were really well ahead of their time - the skin moved in exactly the same way... LOL! :}

Thanks for the compliments guys. Funny thing is, since I took those, I caught it a second time on video as well. Have no idea where the damn videos are though. Never got the chance to "slim" them down for posting so to speak. For some reason, my sub never goes underground and is always out and about, even when he molts. Of course, that may have to do with the fact that I have no hide for him in his tank.... :)
