Cicada
Facebook user Mark Anderson of Alice Springs, Australia posted a time-lapse of a cicada in its nymph (non-adult) stage.

The little guy cracks his shell down the backside and wiggles out of his skin before spreading his wings and taking flight.

The hour long event has been compressed into a near 30 second clip!
