"Ecdysis" is the process in animals of shedding, or molting their outer skin or shell.

1. about 60 %, on average
3. STALAG 13
6. Virginia
7. 1893
8. Pakistan and Afghanistan
In order for certain insects, crustaceans, and reptiles to grow, they must periodically shed, or molt, their outer layer of skin or other covering in a process known as ecdysis. Prior to shedding, a new soft and expandable layer is laid down underneath the existing one. Then the inner layers of the old cuticle are digested by a molting fluid secreted by the epidermal cells, the animal emerges from the old covering, and the new cuticle hardens.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
