Moulting is a natural process that animals go through in order to renew their fur and feathers, regrow the claws and beaks, and even increase the size of certain animals such as certain crabs and insects. It is a process of shedding the old skin, fur or feathers and replacing it with new growth. Moulting occurs when the new coat or feathers do not match the colour or texture of the old ones. The frequency of moulting depends on the type of animal, but generally it happens twice a year, or once a year during the summer.
