Exoskeletons are cool

Out with the old, in with the new.
Today Lana and James were reading about spiders, moulting and exoskeletons. Peter was nearby listening too.
Then not long afterwards they found this.

An exoskeleton.


This is only a baby huntsman spider with legs between 25 and 35 mm (1 - 1.5 inches) long.

That's going into the Treasure Table!

Update: Lana just found an even bigger exoskeleton. The legs were 50mm (2 inches) long. After checking her heart rate, Lana brought the bigger one in and it's now in the Treasure table.
