  1. Out of all the great caterpillars I saw in Mexico, this was hands-down my favorite. Also, one of the few I've managed to identify so far!

      1. It was actually surprisingly easy. It popped up with a simple google search of "caterpillar yucatan" :))).
        I also took a little video of it, which I'll upload shortly.
