slug that looks like a leaf
During a camping trip last Saturday one of the kids found an unusual creature. These pictures are of a slug type creature that was found in a wooded area near a lake about 40 miles north of Pittsburgh PA. From the side it looks like curled horns. From the top it appears to look like a brown leaf. From the bottom you can see a orange caterpillar type body. It could move the leaf looking appendages. Please help us identify this creature.
Thanks
Rick

Hi Rick,
The Hag Moth Caterpillar is also known as a Monkey Slug.
