Need help IDing bug pic from Wisconsin
What a delightful site! Have three boys 7 and under and we learn a great deal from your site. Attached is a creature that fascinated myself and extended family in August ’07. Taken on property in SE Wisconsin with many old growth deciduous trees. My uncle has lived on the property 35 years and never saw such a specimen before. Could you help us learn a bit about it? Many thanks,
Kristin

Hi Kristin,
We love this photograph so much. This is the Caterpillar of a Hag Moth, known as a Monkey Slug. Careful, since it is a stinging caterpillar.
