While this little guy is adorable and fuzzy, it is also one of the most dangerous little guys to touch. Remember my run in with the Saddleback? This one is worse. This is a puss caterpillar. They are so pretty, but so darn lethal. Each of those pretty, furry pieces of the caterpillar offers a potent sting that is excruciating.
Cute as he was, once I looked up what he was, he became dead immediately following. Sorry all lovers of the asp moth.
