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.
