Spiky Caterpillars

I’ve learned the hard way more than once not to mess with caterpillars here.  I’ve taken on hanging caterpillars.  I’ve naively handled fluffy caterpillars.  So when I saw this red, spiky caterpillar, I kept my distance, but couldn’t resist snapping a photo of the interesting creation.

    I certainly wouldn’t want to step on that barefoot! You do have some interesting looking bugs.

    Quite an interestingly, beautiful creature. Wouldn’t it be nice to see if it morphs into a butterfly or moth? Pretty to look at, but I wouldn’t be too eager to hold it without proper identification.
    Thank you for sharing!
