Hello friends in TN.

I spotted this hairy caterpillar underneath the pandanus leave near the peak of Mount Jerai. I'm not sure about the ID but the hairy spikes are rather long. It will probably turn to a moth (tussock moth?) maybe. Help with the ID is so well appreciated.

Thanks for viewing and have a nice day!

Hi Jusni,
I can't help in the ID either, but I find your pic quite interesting with this original-looking caterpillar. Not the most artistic photo you've ever done but not an everyday capture either. Tfs.
Friendly regards, Lszl

Salam Jusni,
I remember taking this weird caterpillar. You presented it differently from mine.
The broken pandanus leaf gives a special graphical effect to the composition.
excellent sharpness of those long spikes and the effective bokeh of the dark background.
