It is important to know about all of the creatures so that you know whether they are safe to touch or not. The Puss Moth Caterpillar may look friendly because of it being so fuzzy, but it can be extremely dangerous. This video is just over two minutes long, and can tell you all about this type of Caterpillar. It is found throughout the southern United States, and can be extremely dangerous. Even though it may sound like a harmless Caterpillar, there is poison inside, and if you touch it, the hairs can poke into your skin.
The video that explains just how dangerous this creature is gives plenty of examples as to how people have come into contact with them and what has taken place when they have touched these dangerous creatures.
It may be worth a few minutes to watch the video and educate your entire family on what these furry little caterpillars are capable of so that everyone knows how to keep their hands off.
When you have family and friends in the southern states, be sure to share this video with them on Facebook.
