what is an exoskeleton? It is a protective covering on the outside of the body
what is molting? Molting is the shedding of the exoskeleton. It is also known as Ecdysis
what is a procuticle? A procuticle is the inner thick layer of an arthropod shell that consists primarily of layers of protein and chitin
what is a Epicuticle? It is the outermost layer of the exoskeleton found on arthropods, made of generally waxy secretions, and lipoprotein layers under it, making it impermeable to water and gas.
