Subject: Spiky Caterpillar
Geographic location of the bug: North Vietnam
Time: 08:41 AM EDT
Today, we found this caterpillar. Rather, it found us. It stung of us in the head, and hurt like hell. The locals assured us, that it wasn’t dangerous, just unpleasant. What can you tell us about that nasty fellow?

Dear The three adventurers,
This is a gorgeous image of a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae. We will attempt a species identification. In the meantime, here is an image from Creative Photography that was also taken in Vietnam, but which is most likely a different species.
