I saw a woolly bear
CW: fuzzy bug 🐛
@starwall i think some species have poisonous coating on the "hairs" but this kind can just cause a little irritation
@starwall I'd also been told this somewhere so I took a look around... apparently these are perfectly safe, but theres some light brown fluffier ones in the south that can cause pain/irritation/swelling similar to a bee sting or something.
@starwall When I was a kid, my little sister and I would call all these caterpillar steve. which annoyed my brother for some reason. Which made us call them Steve all the more whenever we spotted one.
*Spot a caterpillar near the barn entrance* Watch out for steve!
*find a caterpillar inside the barn* woah steve sure hurried over here!
