This Fuzzy Moth Is Anything But Cuddly

flannelcaterpillatCTADid you know that some moths and caterpillars sting?

The Southern flannel moth is a cute and fuzzy little moth that as a caterpillar resembles a hair ball. Because of their soft appearance many children and possibly adults will want to pick them up or pet them.

The “fur” on the flannel moth caterpillar hides a dangerous secret though. Some of the hairs are actually a venomous spine. The bigger and darker the caterpillar, the stronger the venom.

These stings can cause intense burning or itching, but more severe reactions may require medical attention. These reactions range from headaches and nausea to vomiting, increased heart rate and convulsions.
