WATCH: Venomous Black Widow Spider Molts in Captivating Time-Lapse

A Western Black Widow spider is an infamously venomous species. The female spiders have a venom with neurotoxins that can be fatal.

While healthy adults are not at a great risk, children and the elderly can experience medical emergencies and even death if bitten.

Black widows molt several times in their lifetime as they experience growth spurts and need to shed their exoskeleton. Macropod on was able to capture this process in a fascinating time-lapse video.

Check it out in the video above.
