Very bright pink, almost wormlike, caterpillar (Gray hooded owlet caterpillar)
(Houston, TX, USA)
Hot Pink Caterpillar
Very bright pink (fuschia), translucent caterpillar with pink strip down back. I thought it was a worm at first because of its movement and the very slick (hairless) exterior, but it was too fast and didn't inch, but rather, crawled. It looks like a piece of candy! It had some spots, but they look like damage, not like a pattern. The head is clearish-pink and the tail end just has the tiniest little tails sticking out in a V-shape. Almost unnoticeable. I saw this in Spring, TX in October. I have never seen anything like it and I have lived in Houston my whole life.
