Random Pick of the Day

A hairy caterpillar I found at the top of Cathedral Rock in Tasmania. It seems to be of the Anthela species, however I couldn’t find enough information to verify what variant it is. It made for a nice photo anyway 🙂

Although these look kind of fluffy, don’t touch them! Unless you want an itchy stinging finger – the hairs are actually brittle and will break off inside your skin, causing irritation.
