I found the strangest looking bug in Springfield mo. Today. It looks kina like a black fuzzy star fish but moves like a catapiller. Its belly looks like somekind of jelly substance that rolls. It can move and flip itself from any direction. HELP please!

Dear fiesty4ever,
The Monkey Slug is the caterpillar of the Hag Moth, and it is a Stinging Caterpillar that should be handled with caution, or better yet, not handled at all.
