Hi…my sister got bitten by a bright green caterpillar with less than three dark green stripes and has puffy spikes with four orange dots or something
Signature: any way
could you please help me, her hand is “burning” and she claims it’s really painful
Dear any way,
This is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae, and they do not bite. The puffy spikes are stinging spines. We have heard reports that the stings from many members of the family are quite painful. We do not dispense medical advice. If you sister is in pain, she should visit the doctor.
