Gypsy Moth caterpillar

Lymantria dispar

Description:

Dorsum with five pairs of blue warts followed by six pairs of red warts.

Habitat:

temperate forest

Notes:

I spotted this in Short Hills provincial park. I was walking past a small tree with a hole in the trunk. I just barely noticed something inside as I walked past. Upon closer inspection, it was this gypsy moth caterpillar. See last photo for the tree I saw it in.
