I posted one of these pics already but I am putting them up again because I finally got an identification and wanted to share a really great link with you. This fellow raised some of these caterpillars from eggs and documented the life cycle. The caterpillar is the larva of a Giant Silk Moth. I don't think I've ever seen one of these moths in the wild but the caterpillar sure caught my eye. I love how nature can be beautiful and grotesque all at the same time.
