Does come in small packages.
Found this little guy today....the hard way. Its been a while but used to come in contact with them on a weekly basis. Can you name him....without cheating??


 
It is a "Saddle Back" caterpillar. I was a forester for some 25 years and these things were just part of the woods. The one from today is a bit smaller than most but still every bit as potent. He got me about the right nipple and for a few minutes it did burn/itch like the dickens. Man I hate these things.
