Since I never handled this creature with my bare hands I can only guess how it all feels based on what my HD picture shows to be very bumpy surface.

An interesting thing is that long pointy thing at one end of this caterpillar, which is probably part of its defense system because many predators may mistake it for its head meanwhile, the real one is on the other side with the tiny red tipped antennae.

I found this caterpillar in the backyard garden on top of some leaves picked it up with a twig and placed it into an empty white plastic yogurt cup for examination and taking this digital image.

This is my contribution for WP weekly photo challenge:”TEXTURES”.
