This is a Lonomia caterpillar from Brazil, it is responsible for several deaths each year due to its potent venomous defense. The Lonomia Caterpillar looks beautiful but is actually considered a public health hazard in Brazil. The spines that stick out from them are highly poisonous, you don’t even need to touch the thing to get stung. It launches its spines if anything gets close enough.
