Io Moth Caterpillar

Dear Alison,
Your caterpillar is that of an Io Moth.  Your dorsal view hides the dramatic red and white stripes on the side of the Io Moth Caterpillar.  Handle the Io Moth Caterpillar with caution as they have stinging spines.  The adult Io Moth is a beautiful Silkmoth with stunning eyespots.

Oooo, thank you. I let him crawl on a credit card and then put him on the tree.
Thanks again!
