My friend found this little critter in his yard here in southern New Jersey. It bit him and almost 2 hours later his arm is JUST now going back to normal. What is this?

Dear Erin,
We suspect the next time your friend encounters a Saddleback Caterpillar, your friend will look and not touch, since that is the best way to interact with Stinging Slug Caterpillars from the family Limacodidae.
