Yellow Fuzzy

So yesterday I saw this little guy crawling along the driveway.
(Click on the images to enlarge them.)

He was so cute and fuzzy, I just wanted to run my finger over him.
But I didn't. Instead I took a couple of photos of him.

Does anyone know what type caterpillar this is?
I found a cool website to help ID it, 
but none it came up with 
were found in the Pacific Northwest.
So I'm calling it 'Yellow Fuzzy'.
For now. Anyway.

What do you think?



  1. Through some helpful digging by some Facebook friends, we found it is a Yellow Woolleybear Caterpillar (Spilosoma virginica) that changes into a moth. Here's a link that tells a little about it:
    and here:
    (I still like 'yellow fuzzy' ;)

  2. Cute!
    Things to do and places to visit in Dorset for free.

  3. I just found one today. He was crawling on my shoulder. I don't know where I picked him up, so I grabbed leaves from all over the garden and put them all in a big clear container.
    He's happily munching away on some ornamental leaves from a gifted plant.
    So cute

  4. Just saw one today on my driveway. Will read the website provided by Aerie-el. Never saw a yellow caterpillar like that before.


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
