Pic of the Moment: 1 January 2008

MoltThe start of a year is often a time for growth, renewal, and fresh beginnings, so a picture of a molted exoskeleton seemed particular appropriate.

It would be nice if there was some indication of the size. A scale bar would be useful.

It's crayfish-sized. ;)

It's from an adult.

I've been considering these pictures more for art's sake than as research illustrations, but I'll see what I can do about incorporating more information on the image.
