When you picture a caterpillar in your mind's eye, if you're anything like me you think of a monarch or something pretty basic. You may not imagine, say, a saddleback, which is so venomous it can send a human into anaphylactic shock, or a monkey slug, which can sting you. Not only do these caterpillars have crazy powers but they also look pretty wild!
This video featues some of the most interesting looking caterpillars in the USA that you may have never even heard about. Some look like shaggy dogs. Some look like walking leaves. Some even look like aliens! They're all incredibly interesting and worth learning more about.
