All I have to say is....
I loathe.... HATE... ANYTHING in the worm or caterpiller family! They scare the beejeesus outta me!
I will, and have picked up a snake before I will a worm or caterpiller.
When I lived in Ky, we had a tobacco field that I would help house... we would find "baccer" worms like that ALL the time.. My neighbor would chase me around with them until I literally was crying from fear... Now, I have 2 boys who think it's hilarious to bring me inch worms and caterpillers... just to watch mom
