Subject: Bite in botanical garden Vietnam
April 26, 2017 9:18 am
I was recently in Phong Nha park in Vietnam and was stung by something through my leggings as I hiked through a botanical garden there (south East Asian forest/ jungle setting)
It looks like a caterpillar bite but I’m not sure!
Any knowledge would be appreciated:)
Caterpillars do not bite, but some species do have urticating hairs that might cause a reaction like you received. What you have is certainly not a bite.
