542.6619447839.580x360

Description:

Awesome colours on this "furry"-looking caterpillar !!The 'fur' contains venomous spines that cause extremely painful reactions in human skin upon contact. The reactions are sometimes localized to the affected area but are often very severe, radiating up a limb and causing burning, swelling, nausea, headache, abdominal distress, rashes, blisters, and sometimes chest pain, numbness, or difficulty breathing. Megalopyge opercularis (Wikipedia)(Encyclopedia Of Life)
