Yes, it is normal for a Chilean Rose tarantula to molt. In order to grow larger, tarantulas must molt. They shed their entire skin as well as the linings of their mouth, respiratory organs, stomach and sexual organs. When they begin to molt, they lay on their backs with their legs up in the air looking as if they are dead. Don't disturb it. They molt by splitting the exoskeleton and then working the rest of the body and finally the legs out. Adult tarantulas usually complete a molt within several hours and they molt about once a year. Some older females will skip molts. Remember that excessive dryness can kill tarantulas, especially when they molt. For any tarantula, a water dish is a good safeguard. Also, tarantulas will stop feeding for a while, maybe even weeks, when preparing to molt and food must be removed to prevent harm to the tarantula.

This depends on the age of the Tarantula. While younger tarantulas will molt much faster about every two months, the adults will molt about every one or two years. The older they get the less they molt.

A chilean rose is a Tarantula from Chile (south America) it is 4-5 inches fully grown and is a good begginer tarantula, it has week venom but had urticating hairs on the abdomen but will use them very rarely. It is a good begginer becauses it has such a hardy nature and will tolerate a good lot of pestering ( i not advising u do it though)
