If you see anything like this, don't touch it, it can put you in the hospital!  The Puss Caterpillar is mostly found in the Eastern US from South Carolina to Florida and is not the walking toupee that it resembles, but each hair in and of itself is a harmful defense. Even though they look like hairs, they are bristles or spines that break off and are like fiberglass if they get under your skin... only worse!  If you see one, keep a wide berth!
