Hickory Tussock Moth catterpillar

These are supposed to have an itching venom on them and even a poisonous bite - didn't bite me or make me itch, but probably it takes the hairs to break off in your skin to do that. On its way to make a cocoon - it uses its hairs in the construction so the cocoon also will be painful to predators.
