Hi Patricia,
This is an Io Moth Caterpillar.  Handle it carefully as the spines are capable of stinging.  In our submission form, the location field should be used to indicate the state or country where the sighting occurred.

Thank you for the identification and warning about the io moth. What a beautiful, emerald green!   I am in Palm Bay, FL
