Just wanted to share an amusing observation of Dr. Coil this morning as he was shedding. So there he was shedding well, the old skin was snagged on a plastic plant leaf and he had about 50% of it off. As he continued to pull out of it, the old skin unsnagged suddenly and it was such a shock to Dr. Coil that he violently jumped across the tank. The result: he literally jumped out of his skin.
Full discloser: he didn't jump completely out of it, it broke in the process (he did get the rest off later though).
