Safety in the Field

The saddleback catepillar is pictured above. Beware of its sting!

In Science classes everyone has to take a safety test. I just finished my safety briefing. I learned how to spot ticks that cling to clothing and try to bite you (Lyme Disease), the saddleback catepillar, and hornets that like to build nests on the ground/trees. We also have to wear bright orange vests as it is deer hunting season! Luckily, it is too cold for copperhead snakes.

1. Compare the hazards in the Science classroom to the hazards I face in the field.

That is a great looking fellow. Too bad he stings. Is it poisonous or just hurts?

They are not poisonous, they just sting and apparently it really stings.
