Grey furry caterpillar (Davis' Tussock moth caterpillar)
by Robin Pollard
(Pritchett, CO, USA)
Discovered this caterpillar on our mulberry tree in Southeast Colorado (Pritchett, CO) MUNCHING with hundreds of its brothers and sisters. I care for many black swallowtail and sometimes monarch babies in the garden but this is my whole tree (close to 80 yrs in age) and these guys are asking too much!
