Saddleback caterpillar

Saddleback Caterpillar

I got stung by one of this little guys brothers while hiking on the AT this weekend. Hurt like helland I still have a raised red area where he hit me.

The caterpillar will eventually turn into a moth and be non-poisonous, but in its caterpillar stage, it has the worst of the sitnging slug caterpillar venom.
