Mr. Bugman, during a search for bugs for my 7th graders classification project, I came across this interesting creature. It was munching on the leaves along a tree line adjacent to my lawn. It moves around like some kind of slug, but it’s the wierdest thing I’ve ever seen.
Though it is called a Monkey Slug, your creature is actually a caterpillar. Handle it with care as it is capable of stinging.
