    Yep heard something on the news but never seen anything like that. But nothing lives in Arizona but lizards. Never see them because they're hiding under a rock

    Yep we have them in TX. Have had a few friends over the years who bare the scars of having them drop from trees onto their skin.

        Hell yes. I was stung on my arm and it was extremely unpleasant; and nauseating for hours on end. The pain was sharp at the sting site and then radiated up my arm and into my chest. Nauseous and sweating for hours. I was a teenager at the time. My parents probably should have carted me off to the hospital. Anyway, the marks/scars on my arm were visible for years.

        I've seen the moths a couple of times, but never the caterpillar.

        Even the moth is a "WTF is that" moment.

        Puss Catepillar, I thought you were talking about a C-13!

        I'll take a Cummins thank you.

          I called them an Asp back when I got stung as a teen. That’s funny I see this here, because a buddy of mine and I were supposed to go fishing last Saturday and he was stung while trimming trees so we didn’t go. A few days later he tells me it was a puss catapiller. Plenty of them here in Texas.
