Mobile photo I shot at Mexico City of a Mexican caterpillar.
Locally called azotador, because if touched it can hurt you by leaving a burned irritated skin.
Since ancient times this little critter was famous for its spiky appearance, known in Nahuatl (or Mexican language) as Chinahuate (Chignahuate), Huahuatl or Ahuate.
Nowadays, people in Mexico with thick eyebrows are called Azotador Eyebrows, an expression that also comes from Nahuatl language.
If you like Mexican languages and native stories you will enjoy my novel, Till Stars Shut Their Eyes.
