Nature Journal: American Dagger Moth Caterpillar

We found this fuzzy little guy climbing up the side of the house today and decided he was a good specimen for our nature journals! He curled up into a ball and didn't move for quite a while so it was a great chance for the kids to get a good look at him and draw him in their journal. We had to look up his name online because we could not find him in our ID books!
Here is a site with more info: Bug Guide Site.

James, Ethan, and Emmy were too busy smiling for this pic to notice our little fuzzy friend escaping! You can just barely see him on the far left top side of the leaf!!

Bye little fuzzy!
