This week we saw a Pale Tussock caterpillar!

The common identifying feature of most tussock caterpillars is their fuzzy appearance. The pale tussock has clumps of lemon-yellow and white hairs covering its body. You can often find hairy pale-yellow tussock caterpillars munching their way through willow, birch, and oak leaves.
