Hi Frank & Dustin,
We are excited to post your photo as it is our first posting of a Hickory Horned Devil, the caterpillar of the Royal Walnut Moth, that we are making this season. This is generally regarded to be North America’s largest caterpillar. Despite its fierce appearance, which has been compared to a Chinese dragon, it is perfectly harmless.
THANK YOU FOR IDENTIFING OUR FIND!!!
