My son found this in the garden .
Is it poisonous ?
Can it do damage to my kids, garden house , etc?
Should I look for more. Or leave it alone .
It has since roamed back into the garden.
I have small boys , 4 years old. Very curious and touchy. A bit scared .
How you want your letter signed: Thanks in advance for your help.
This looks like a Cape Lappet Moth Caterpillar to us. We have not found any information indicating it poses a danger.
