Molting Slideshow

Play molting periodical cicada slideshow video Author: Massachusetts Cicadas
Published On: 2008-06-11
Description: This is a brief video slideshow of a Periodical cicada going through the ecdysis (molting) process. It takes approximiately 2 hours for the process to be completed. During this time, the periodical cicada is extremely vulnerable and sometimes the process doesn't go so well. Anything can happen during this time. For instance other periodical cicadas can trample over this one to try to get to other spots to molt which causes damage - predation which most often leads to death and deformities which can result from a myriad of reasons.
