Scary, Spiny Caterpillar!

Emily D. brought in some photos of a caterpillar her father took this summer. This caterpillar sure is strange! It has a green body with black and red spikes and  black horns all over it’s body!

Well, I had a hard time identifying this caterpillar, but I finally found out what it was–a ‘hickory horned devil’. The adult is a regal moth or royal walnut moth.

Click here is some information about this strange critter!

Emily’s photos are much nicer than this one, but I wanted to show you what it looked like!hickory horned devil2hickory horned devil
