Caterpillar…uh oh, be careful !!!
“Many tossock moth caterpillars have urticating hairs (often hidden among longer, softer hairs) which can cause painful reactions if they come in contact with the skin.”
I found this one right outside my backdoor, thank goodness I didn’t touch it or try to pick it up. And thank goodness Baron didn’t find it and try to eat it 😦
So I’m now adding this to my list of (possible) toxic critters in the backyard.
