Another spectacular slug-foot caterpillar which almost got my neck while snapping fungi. These really really hurt if the spines are touched.
From past experience I know this one is ready to pupate and some of it's siblings had already done that on the same branch.
Churchill NP.. open, dry sclerophyll eucalyptus woodlands. This one on E.viminalis
Lucky the leaf tip touched my neck first and made me look up because focus was down on fungi. Hope I don't tread on a snake one day.
