I’ve seen some weird and wonderful creatures since I’ve been living here in Aus, (human and animal). But in the garden today I came across this monster, which really takes the cake, biscuit the whole sweet trolley in fact! It’s some sort of caterpillar on steroids and acid.
It was about 5 inches long and thicker than my thumb.
Knowing the way of Australian creatures I thought it may be poisonous. I did try to get Mrs. Bastard to touch it to find out, but she declined. Truth be told, it was truly beautiful, and had me gamboling around the garden like an excited child.
So, can anyone enlighten me as to what it is? Many thanks in advance, Pommy Bastard.
