You know how a snake sheds it's skin?  And birds molt?  

What's it called when an insect replaces it's exoskelton?  What's the name of the empty shell and the name of the process?

maybe I should make a poll!  I doubt many people will vote in it, but, it'll be fun either way.  :)

MORPHOGENESIS-

If it survives, it will periodically outgrow and replace its exoskeleton (a process known as molting).
