Caption: Moth caterpillar (family Limacodidae). Caterpillars are the larvae of moths and butterflies (order Lepidoptera). Many have long hairs (setae, shown here) covering their body that act as a defence mechanism. The hairs often have detachable tips that will irritate would-be predators by lodging in the skin or mucous membranes.
