I spotted this on our living room floor. Thinking it was a bit of fluff I went to pick it up but then it moved. It sort f reared up and out of the head end there were 4 crimson coloured areas of short hair that popped out (Defense I presume) It is just over 3 inches long and rather flat unlike other caterpillars. I presume that it is of the moth family due to it being so large and hairy.
