Another Fuzzy Caterpillar

October 1, 2009

Found this caterpillar while pulling out tomato plants. It might be another variety of tiger moth, but I’m not sure. We were careful not to touch this one, just put him in a jar to watch. So far, he hasn’t started his cocoon, but he did shed his whiskers.

    Beautiful caterpillar. I like the golden color next to his black whiskers.

    The sight of so much hair on its body makes mee feel itchy already!
