Slug Caterpillar

Dear Landon,
We do not know how to calculate your location, but we are guessing Brazil.  Please confirm.  This is a Slug Moth Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, and it looks very similar to a North American species, the Monkey Slug, and we suspect it might be in the same genus
Phobetron.

Monkey Slug

Thank you!
Yes I live in Brazil.
