My friend and I found a hairy green caterpillar at college today, we don't have a picture but it looks like this.
Please can someone identify it as we are dying to know what it is called!
I don't own this image, also, the caterpillar we found had thicker hait on its back.
Found in Somerset, UK.
it looks like the caterpillar of the Pale Tussock Moth Dasychira pudibunda it eats oak, birch, lime and hop leaves.
I looked on Google Images and I'm pretty sure you are spot on! Thanks for helping, my friend will be excited to hear!
I agree. It's the pale tussock moth.
