Fuzzy Slug in Alpharetta GA
I am not sure if this is a slug… He isn’t slimey like most of the slugs posted on your site. Any ideas? He looks more like a sea slug? Thanks!

Hi Daria,
This is actually a Slug Caterpillar, probably the Smaller Parasa, Parasa chloris. There are a few photos from Georgia on BugGuide. Slug Caterpillars are known for their stinging spines.
