Observation date: June 16, 2017
Submitted by: Mothra2001
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This caterpillar was found on some type of ivy that was climbing around my fence. The caterpillar is fuzzy with long hairs, and is white, black, and orange, and it's face is black. This caterpillar can sometimes become twitchy, which makes it look like it's dancing at the club. It makes it's cocoon on a leaf, instead of hanging like butterflies do. Which leads me to believe that this is a moth.
