This fuzzy, robust, active caterpillar has been tentatively identified on BugGuide.net as a Tiger Moth in the Tribe Arctiini.
It was photographed underneath pines in a mixed pine-hardwood forest in the piedmont region of east-central Georgia. The location was along the Bartram Trail (Lake Springs Section) in Columbia County, GA near Thurmond Lake.
On the Facebook Inset ID Group, Grammia was suggested as the genus. I thought that I'd give the Project Noah nation a shot at assisting with the ID. It just may not be possible to further classify the species based on these photographs.
