    There are caterpillars that sting. These insects do not sting in the same sense as a bee or wasp would though. Stinging caterpillars have “specialized nettling or urticaceous setae or spines. These structures are hollow and contain toxins from poison-gland cells to which they are joined. These are primarily defensive structures for protection of caterpillars from predators and other enemies.”
