My daughter and I saw this in Belize or Guatemala (can’t remember what part of the trip) and are stumped. Totally and completely.

Monkey Slug from Belize

Hi Shoshana,
This caterpillar looks so much like the stinging Monkey Slug from North America,
Phobetron pithecium (see BugGuide), that we believe it is either the same species, a subspecies, or a closely related species in the same genus.
