Apparently there are two types of moths that go by the nickname of Puss Moth Caterpillar. The true name for this one is Cerula Vinula and grows to about 80mm (3.1 in) long. The adult moth of this caterpillar has soft fluffy fur that looks and feels like that of a cat’s, (with somewhat similar markings to boot!) hence the name.
In caterpillar form, it’s pudgy and bright green with two “eyes”, a red-ringed “face” and a pose you might even say seems rather cat-like, as in the above picture. The strange-looking caterpillar has two tails but that’s where its cuteness ends. When threatened, it’ll rear up its head like a snake and show an angry face that will follow you around like a Mona Lisa from hell. If that doesn’t make you back off, it’ll wave its tails in anger and spit formic acid to you.
