Love seeing those bristly caterpillars; hope to see one in person one day!

I agree that it looks like a tussock moth caterpillar. It certainly looks like something I wouldn't want to touch. Growing up in California, I used to love to hold woolly bears and other caterpillars. In Virginia, too many of them sting!

Erebidae, Lymantriinae or Tussock Moth Caterpillar. I think it is either an Orgyia sp. or Olene sp., with a slight tendence to Orgyia sp., but I am not 100% sure. Please, verify and/or take it as a hint for further searching.
