I found a caterpillar that was 5' 6" long today, looked on the internet to find what kind it was and after about 30 minutes I found it. I dont have pictures of mine but heres a site that has pictures and info on it, its called the "Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar" ... this thing is huge! it was crossing my driveway when I found it.

I've seen some large ones, but 5 foot 6 inches is much larger than the ones around here.

Will it handle a saddle? You'd be the talk-of-the-town!

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Wow.  If you see more than two of them I'd call KathyP or reinbeu and see if you can't get some firepower down there, it could be an invasion!!! evil

hahahahaha 5'6", cant believe I typed that, was trying to say 5 1/2 inches. sometimes I crack my self up, it is the biggest caterpillar I ever seen, I turned it back loose this morning in a safer spot..... well as some of you might have been wondering, no I wouldn't touch it at first, that thing was kinda tough looking but when I found out it was harmless I had no problems, those horns and spikes are hard, bet they would stick you if you put pressure on them.... it was just something I never seen or heard of before and thought I might share it..
