Looks like somebody combed their spines this morning! Why don't you keep em' to yourself bud? I'm sensing some aposematic coloration going on here and I don't exactly want to find out if you're poisonous or not.

Looks like a Banded Tussock Moth caterpillar! This is a great shot--lovely coloration on the lil guy!
While many tussock moth species have stinging spines, I've found some conflicting info on this particular one. Good not to touch 'em though--better safe than sorry!
