The spider selects and appropriate spot in the evening and drops a bit of webbing. It performs this necessary part of maturation in the evening because it is less likely that predators will see the dangling spider and the humidity is relatively higher affording some ease in getting out of the old skin. Then the transformation takes place at the end of the web. The entire exosklelton is shed over a period of s few hours. Then the spider crawls up the web, waits a bit and by the time morning rolls around, it is nearly ready to resume life. It spends the day undergoing changes that hardens up its integument and by evening it is ready to resume hunting. The process is initiated by hormones and moultng fluid helps to create a gap between the old skin and the new one that is forming beneath. This fluid is reabsorbed after moulting.
