The Very Hairy Caterpillar

You have heard of the Very Hungry Caterpillar I suppose. But not the Very Hairy one. Khage was yet to be introduced to the Hungry Caterpillar's evil stepbrother until today. It took all all his self control to not run over and pick this thing up, if I was not supervising I can only assume he would have showed no reluctance in snatching this pillar right up. Good thing Warden Mommy was on duty. Instead of man handling the creature like he would have wanted he was allowed to sit and observe Henry from a distance. Henry did seem like a suitable name at the time, just a fuzzy lovable little creature trying to scoot from one side of the yard to the other. And then I googled Henry and found out his hairs are possibly venomous and he turned from sweet little Henry into the creepy stepbrother that got himself chucked into a nearby field. Suddenly it becomes very clear to me why this pillar didn't end up with his own children's book and his stepbrother Hungry did.

Kind of creepy. That an insect can be soooo dangerous!
