Green fuzzy critter

slug caterpillar worm furry

On our walk up to the viewpoint in Shirakawago we encountered this giant, caterpillar/slug/? creature. It was about six inches (15 cm) in length. The fur on the top was soft but the quills on the side were very hard and sharp.

    Its a caterpillar. The fur is there to deter predators eating it.
