Caterpillar at Meteor Crater, Arizona
November 29, 2009
Can you help me identify this caterpillar? He has black segments and orange and yellow segments. He’s about half as long as a US bill. He is really furry.

Hi Jennifer,
Our first impression was that this had to be a Tiger Moth Caterpillar, usually called a Woolly Bear, but we could not locate a match on bugGuide.  It might also be an Owlet Moth Caterpillar.
