9-10-14 Unusual caterpillar - Big Lake, Alaska, USA
Observaion: Southcentral region/Mile 52 of George Parks Hwy, Big Lake, Alaska (insects) A fat, fuzzy, completely black caterpillar about 1.5 inches long, on my patio, and ground. In my 15 years in residence at this specific location I have never seen this type of caterpillar. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a picture of the critter, but was hoping to identify the insect.
