Fuzzy Catapillar

I just saw a hairy ,fuzzy catapillar slowly going across my rocks. Its gray and looks like one of those catapillars that makes webs in trees down here in Fl.

Any ideas, sorry, camera broken.

I've looked all morning for a picture of this worm/catapillar to ID it but no luck.

I might call Mike @ Liverocks to see if he has any idea.

I just went through the links you gave me Reeflady, no luck. Thank you.

I also just got off the phone w/ Mike from liverocks and he had no idea either, he told me to take a pic when I get my camera fixed.

Seems like this this is a odd creature, I hope he makes it through my cycle.
