Looks at this crazy caterpillar, which we spotted in the dunes earlier. Sometimes known as 'woolly bears' this is a Garden Tiger Moth larvae. It gets this nickname from the thick hair that covers it body. This hair acts as a deterrent to predators that would otherwise gobble up this caterpillars as a tasty treat!
