Fuzzy Wuzzy

This video surfaced on the net last week. Totally weird, but totally cool. Does anyone know what this is? It seems to be a caterpillar of some kind and probably a moth caterpillar. It looks like a woolly bear on steroids. If woolly bears predict the weather, then this critter says that Al Gore is right.

Check out this web site; that might be it. I believe PZ Myers had a short bit about this video several weeks ago.
