Top 11 Fuzzy Caterpillars
Sycamore Tussock Caterpillar:The sycamore tussock caterpillar has itchy bristles that might result in hives, like many other fuzzy caterpillars. These caterpillars are neither a lethal variation nor a species that will sting.
Hickory Tussock Caterpillar:This hairy caterpillar is a black and white species from the Lophocampa genus that belongs to the same family as the sycamore tussock moth.
