Saturnid Caterpillar

Hylesia continua

Hairiness quite different from most caterpillars, and, has approximately 8cm

I found these specimens at the estate of my grandfather, a region of pastures, and, with great variety of flowers, fruits and fungi.

Notes:

There were dozens of such specimens. Probably would prepare for the metamorfose.
