Hickory Horned Devil

On my last hike up to Dragon’s Tooth in VA, I came across this caterpillar. At first it scared me! I think poisonous whenever I see odd colors in crawly things.

After a bit of research I can say that I’m still a little creeped out by this guy. It’s me.

I’m trying to see it as wondrous, because it truly is.

It has a few names along with its genus and species. Citheronia Regalis.

It is regal I think. I’m trying. Anyway, it is a REALLY COOL BUG.

All In
