Can you tell me what this is and is it harmful?
This impressive caterpillar is a Cecropia Moth Caterpillar. It is perfectly harmless unless a morbid and irrational fear of the unknown causes a person who encounters one to flee, and run in front of a car. Even the most benign creatures can be a contributing factor in the harming of a human being. The caterpillar will eventually metamorphose into a gorgeous, and very large Cecropia Moth.
