A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Unidentified caterpillar I found while hiking. It's fast moving but as I moved closer, it stopped and play dead.
Its really cool how creatures like these can move fast,it looks so plant-like and slow !!
Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
KaraNoby, I guess now is the season for Tussock Moth
Thanks peeps for the comments especially Paul Davis for the ID.
I've got the same one :) I saw them often in eastern Borneo http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/131...
What a beauty ,I would say it is a Tussock Moth Caterpillar (Lymantriinae) ,but I don't know which species.
Love the first view. Reminds me of when I was a kid running through the water sprinkler during the summer. Awesome photos!
