Big Red Caterpillar
Can you identify this one? Found on Isle of Hope, Georgia.

Hi Matthew,
The Imperial Moth Caterpillar is a highbly variable caterpillar in coloration. We have never seen one this red. Also, the spined dorsal tubercles on second and third thoracic segment on your specimen are a little different than we normally see. A lateral view would have been nice to see on your specimen.
