For Something a Little Different.

 The caterpillars that I posted yesterday were all butterfly larvae, which are usually not very hairy. Moth larvae on the other hand are very often extremely hairy. The one above, belonging to a Cup Moth is spiky rather than hairy however, but look at the amazing colours and patterning!
 These different moth caterpillars are sometimes called woolly bear caterpillars because of their very woolly coats of course. I have no idea what sort of moths they will turn into.
