He’s Cute! Can I Pet Him?

I found this fuzzy baby munching on some Lucifer leaves.


He looks so much like a tiny Barley bunny, that I wanted to pick him up.


Good thing I know better.


This sweet little puss caterpillar also has another name.

Asp caterpillar.

Megalopyge opercularis, wooly slug, asp caterpillar

Megalopyge opercularis/Flannel moth caterpillar/wooly slug

If you must pet it, you will get stung.


He’s cute, but he’s mean.
