Curious Little Caterpillar

I'll let you know when I figure out what it is.

Don't touch it! I can't tell for sure but it looks like the kind I got stung, (yes stung as in bee) by last week. Hurt like the dickens! A little research showed it was an IO Moth caterpillar.
Those poor deer (above)I wonder if a local animal rescue would take them in until they could be put back in the wild?

Ow! I will steer clear! My kids love to pick up all kinds of insects, but they do know that some sting. There is an assasin bug that's particularly nasty (although it isn't aggressive). Around here we have the wheel bug, in the same family. I hadn't thought to call animal rescue!
