Though we have not had any luck locating a matching image to your spectacular caterpillar, we believe it is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar in the subfamily Lymantriidae. Here is a Getty Images example of an obviously different species. Perhaps one of our readers will have better luck at an identification than we have had.
