Found 2 of these in my garden this evening... they seem to be preparing to pupate, so i have kept one to see what it turns into.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was called the Porcupine Caterpillar, however, I notice it is from South Africa, so maybe not. I wonder if it uses styling gel. HA! Awesome series.
