Fuzzy Caterpillar

The unusual critter sightings continue. I had to do a double take on this fuzzy guy. At first I wasn't sure it was alive, but upon closer inspection I saw it move and watched it eat a leaf from the hibiscus plant.

The perfectly placed hair was so thick I couldn't see the body of the caterpillar. The hairdo reminds me of the bouffants of the 60's, or even the big hair from the 80's. The hairy creature was about two inches long.

How cool! I'm also curious what the transformation looks like.
