The Bug Enthusiast

Have you ever literally watched a bug shed its exoskeleton? No? Me either. This guy did.

A bright green grasshopper emerges from its old skin, leaving a perfect replica of itself behindThe Daily Mail wrote about a really, really patient man in Indonesia who watched a grasshopper molt out of its skin, leaving a perfectly-shaped grasshopper exoskeleton behind. Not only are the pictures incredibly done but…have you ever seen anything like this?! Click through for all the pictures.

And seriously, what’s up with that ant?
