#19 Denki Mushi
Who knew caterpillars could be so dangerous? Despite how electrifying it looks, this is another caterpillar you definitely won’t want to meet.
In Japanese, Denki Mushi translates into ‘electric bug’. While its looks are definitely striking, with a bright green body with brown and blue patches and spines, the name is inspired by its electrifying touch— literally!
When you touch this caterpillar, it releases a chemical that feels like an electric shock.
