Doctors: Don’t pet fuzzy caterpillar
It looks harmless enough, even inviting petting, but stay far away from one furry caterpillar.
According to WFLA, the puss caterpillar is actually the most poisonous in the U.S. and it’s been found in Florida.
Scientists say there are bristles under the hair that break off when touched, releasing venom into a person’s system. The venom then causes serious pain, like a sting from a scorpion or jellyfish according to KTAL.
