How do arthropods grow?

1 Answer

Answer :

Due to the presence of exoskeleton the growth of an arthropod is periodical. During the growth period the animal loses the exoskeleton, grows and develops a new exoskeleton. This process is named ecdysis, or molting. Phylum Arthropoda - Image Diversity: ecdysis
