If you see this caterpillar, look but don't touch

October 5, 2012

This fuzzy little caterpillar may look cute, but the hairs on its body can cause a burning, stinging sensation and rash when touched, so specimens of this kind should be avoided. Known as the white hickory Tussock moth caterpillar, the insect may be found in the area; this one was at Veolia Greentree Landfill in Fox Township, Elk County. Photo by Victoria Stanish.
