Poisonous and strange creatures have the capability to roam in all types of environments. It's always good to be cautious of anything that looks unfamiliar.
Children with their curious and imaginative minds are the most susceptible to touching things based on their appearances. Places such as local parks or wooded areas are where caution is surely needed!

It is highly warned that touching the barbs, which on this caterpillar look like soft cat hair, contains drops of venom that cause horrific pain, along with bouts of excessive sweating and nausea.
