My wife caught our tarantula, Gypsy (a Brachypelma vagans) flipped on her back to begin the process of molting.
In this photo, she is fully out of her old exoskeleton. She will remain on her back for some time, and start wiggling while fluid spreads throughout her new exoskeleton and it expands slightly. The fangs are pale white and will change to red and then black as they harden.
