Some fuzzy caterpillar...

was up a tree waiting fore some lorikeets, when I came across this lil fuzzy guy it’s about 5cm long, quit large. Iv never seen a caterpillar like this before, so I’m wondering if anybody knows what fuzzy thing is?

I found it in a pepper corn tree in the back yard, As you can tell by the leaves in the back round.

I had to crop the pitcher a lot...it wouldn’t fit.

That looks like a White Cedar moth caterpillar! Common throughout Australia.
