What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Dear Bugman:
This caterpillar was found in my yard in Coppell , Texas (North Texas ). It is soft and when it latches onto a twig or blade of grass it really grabs on. I’d like to know what kind of caterpillar it is and what it turns into. Thank you!

Hi Valarie,
In some areas, the Puss Moth Caterpillar has the local common name Asp. These caterpillars have stinging hairs that cause skin irritation.
