Crabs …can split themselves open from time to time and start life over with a fresh skin, complete with new appendages and even – if need be – whole regenerated eyes. The molting process itself is as astonishing as its results: the hermit preparing to shed its brittle skin will creep out of whatever seashell it’s wearing at the moment, bury itself in damp sand, & inhale water (insofar as an animal with gills 
“inhales”) until it has built up enough hydrostatic pressure to split its old casing and shuck it off. This is self-renewal at its fiercest and most tempting…
