Piney Woods area of Texas harbors lots of strange creatures. But this is the first time I’ve ever seen anything like this! What in the heck IS it?

Monkey Slug

Dear MaryB,
This Caterpillar is commonly called a Monkey Slug, but handle with caution as they are capable of stinging.

Thank you so much!  I see lots of strange critters out here in the boonies and this thing is now rated #1 on my weird list.
No touchie, just lookie. 😉
