Traveling in the United States can be a truly enjoyable experience. However, when you look at the list of dangerous insects, snakes and other animals that you may encounter, a little fear sets in. If you have good travel and life insurance, you could still travel to the United States, but be well informed before you set foot there.
Buck Moth Caterpillar
Buck moth caterpillars, found across the East Coast, have a coating of poisonous bristles. They have an extremely painful sting that can, although rarely, provoke anaphylaxis, which can kill without medical attention.
These caterpillars conglomerate in large feeding groups, which can present a significant hazard to any unwary human who blunders into them.
