Spiders shed their exoskeleton, or molt, when they grow.

The woodchuck enjoying rotten leftovers...golden corn. It's plumping up nicely for hibernation.

  4. Garden spiders are some of my favorites. And I’ve never seen a woodchuck. And it’s chucking corn on the cob? Not wood? Childhood myths crushed in a single blow

      Galen the woodchuck has taken to eating the corn now that’s it’s finished off most of my flowers. Cute, but stinkers.
