My Photography shot | "Cockroah Molting Process"
Cockroaches are known to be insects with their own exoskeleton. Once the cockroaches shed their skin, they are transformed into milky color roaches for a couple of hours. Their exoskeleton is also completely rigid and is sturdy by necessity. As compared to the bones of mammals and fishes, the cockroaches’ exoskeleton doesn’t grow with them. This is the reason why they need to shed off their skin for some time. This is also especially if they have grown bigger.
They shed their skins once in while when they increase in size or maturity. Cockroach molting or shedding its skin periodically is the only way that a young cockroach can grow since its hard, outer cuticle won't allow expansion. The process of molting is called ecdysis. During that time the wingless nymph will molt 6 or 7 times before turning into an adult.
