We came across this caterpillar a few miles from our house. We were attempting to “geo-cache” with the three older grandkids–unsuccessfully I should add. This guy was almost six inches long. Of course, one of the boys wanted to step on it. Yech. But I saved it’s life and we looked it up on the Internet. It’s the caterpillar of the Royal Walnut Moth which isn’t even listed in “National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida”. That has got to be one awesome moth!
