What kind of caterpillar is this? I searched your site and could not find one like it. It’s yellow, fuzzy, and about 3 inches long. Found in Dallas, Georgia.

What a gorgeous photo of a Spotted Apatelodes Caterpillar, Apatelodes torrefacta. The adult moth is sometimes confused with the sphinx moths, when it is in fact related to the silk moths.
