This is a moth larva living in southern Brazil.
Although we have been psychologically prepared for the caterpillar‘s disgusting appearance, the Brazilian caterpillar’s disgusting appearance still scared me. From its beautiful protective color, you can know that his toxicity is not to be underestimated. It is said that many people die every year because of this caterpillar poison.
At the same time, this caterpillar toxin is also a very good anticoagulant, which can be used for the treatment of accidental wounds.
