We saw this bug on July 11th at the North Carolina Zoological Park in Ashboro, North Carolina. My 22 year old daughter took a video and showed it to an employee who said she had never seen anything like it and that it moved like a caterpillar

Monkey Slug

Dear LeeAnne,
Though it does not look like other caterpillars, this Monkey Slug really is a caterpillar.  Handle with caution though, the Monkey Slug is capable of stinging.
