I found this little guy at work hiding out on the steps, probably praying not to get stepped on. What kind is it? He’s white with black circles all over him, almost looks like someone dew on him with a black marker lol

Eyed Tiger Moth

Dear Meg,
This pretty little Tiger Moth is commonly called an Eyed Tiger Moth or Giant Leopard Moth.  There is a great deal of variation in the spotting pattern between individuals.  Adult Eyed Tiger Moths do not feed and the caterpillars are commonly called Woolly Bears.
