Io Moth Caterpillar

#50 Io Moth Caterpillar

While the Io Moth Caterpillar from North America is one of the many caterpillar species to be wary of, it doesn’t do much damage to humans other than stinging pain.

Before transforming into a harmless moth, this caterpillar is clearly distinguishable by its white and red candy cane stripe, contrasting against a yellow-green body with protruding spines connected to venom.

Upon coming in contact with these spikes, it will feel similar to a bad bee sting, with the pain fading after a few hours.
