For some reason I don’t think my submission went through so I am trying again. So I am in Uganda came across this White creature.
It is 3 cm wide and 7-8 cm long. Couldn’t identify it so here I am.

There is no photo attached.

Dear Daniel
Well okay I am an idiot… I am sorry for wasting your time here are the pictures. I am so sorry!!

Dear Bethel,
Thanks for resending your images.  Knowing the food plant often helps tremendously in identifying insects.  We have no idea what kind of caterpillar you observed, but its white, feathery appearance are distinctive.  Our initial search turned up no matching images.  We are going to presume that this is a Moth Caterpillar and not a Butterfly Caterpillar.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to assist in an identification.  Sometimes we get a proper identification many years after posting the images.
