we moved what we thought was a dried slug off some wood only to find a big fat green caterpillar inside. We have put it safe . Have we hurt it. It did spit a bit.
thankyou for reply
seriously. Didn't know what it was tucked it away safe
Ignore the WUM. The Mods will deal with it when they're back at their desks.
Your photo looks like the cocoon of a moth caterpillar ... don't know what type - inside the cocoon it'll form a chrysalis and then pupate and eventually emerge as a fully-fledged adult moth. Keep it in the same sort of environment as you found it and it should be fine.
Edited to say: I'm sure it'll be fine in your bug house
