Olly Boon took this Video in the Ucayali Amazon basin in a community north of Pucallpa in Peru. This family of moths is known for having hairy caterpillars, which look all fluffy, cute and cuddly.
And although it may look inviting to you, hidden beneath the soft hairs are poisonous spines. If they are handled the spines may break, releasing a chemical which causes excruciating pain, and will also pierce the skin. It can also cause an extreme allergic reaction resulting in rashes, blisters, inflammation, and breathing difficulty.
