Cinnabar Moth Caterpillar Report Abuse
Their brightly colored skin indicates that they are dangerous. Their sting usually causes rash but there have also been several deaths caused by that insect.

Lonomia achelous Caterpillar Report Abuse
It has stings with venom glands and the venom it erupts is powerful enough to make a human bleed to death.

I was stung by one of these today on my hand. Instant pain, stinging and swelling. 6 hrs later, it's still swollen and painful. The stinging has subsided.

Wattle Cup Caterpillar Report Abuse
It is brightly colored and looks like a piece of rock candy, however you should not touch one of these as the pain caused by their stings is said to be worse than being stung by three wasps.

Stinging Rose Caterpillar Report Abuse
Another very colourful caterpillar. It has long yellow spines, which almost call you to touch it, which would be an awful idea as it stings.

I've been stung at least 3 times in 5 days by these. Though it itched n felt like fiberglass under the skin, there were no long- lasting pain.

Spiny Oak-slug Caterpillar Report Abuse
It looks really funny with its spikes, but touching one of these is a bad idea because it stings quite painfully.
